I wish to object, in the strongest possible terms, to the proposed rules 
governing companies that provide WHOIS privacy services (ref, your 
Privacy and Policy Services Accreditation Issues Policy document).

I am a small business owner (as I'm sure are the majority of 
domain holders) using a home address, under privacy, to register my home 
business website. Privacy is a fundamental human right, and if the rules 
as proposed come to pass, any spammer, malcontent, or commercial 
salesman would be able to gather my home details at will without due 
process and without my knowledge of it happening. This would be as bad 
as a web site hacker getting my personal details - but legally. This is 
not acceptable. I have chosen to use - and pay - for privacy services for 
many years to avoid exactly this, and if this change passes that will all have 
been wasted money. My personal information should *not* 
be revealed without a court order, regardless of whether the request 
comes from a private individual, company or even a law enforcement agency.

I await your reply eagerly.
