I object to the proposed change as it will expose thousands of legitimate users 
to harassment from other parties.  In the current environment there are many 
political websites which have a 1st amendment right to free speech.  Exposing 
owners will grant opposing political parties the option to harass and 
intimidate users. 

There are many other examples I can think of, I am sure many comments will 
touch on them.  this is a BAD IDEA. Please don’t proceed.

While I understand the enterrainmen industry desire to quash piracy, there are 
legal tools to obtain evidence that can yield warrants.

To remove everybody’s right to privacy to satify a large commercial interest 
(with options) is WRONG

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 revealed without a court order,
regardless of whether the request comes from a private individual or law
enforcement agency.
