Dear ICANN –

Regarding the proposed rules governing companies that provide WHOIS privacy 
services (as set forth in the Privacy and Policy Services Accreditation Issues 
Policy document):

With the current subpoena procedures already in place, the Category C-1 
recommendation *needlessly* puts small business owners and other individuals at 
risk of harassment. The changes would discourage legitimate commercial entities 
from continuing to provide controversial but valid services. Some may feel the 
need to deliberately provide inaccurate or misleading WHOIS information. This 
would be counteractive to its purpose.

I urge you to respect internet users' rights to privacy and due process. 
- Everyone deserves the right to privacy.
- No one’s personal information should be unwillingly revealed without a court 
order, regardless of whether the request comes from a private individual or law 
enforcement agency. 

Private information should be kept private. 

Thank you.
