Please find attached a revised draft which reflects support for a broad
definition of "Consumer" and added emphasis as to why timely,
unrestricted and public access of Whois is important to business.

My suggestion is that the BC position should strongly support the
broader definition. All Web and Internet statistics use the concept of
individuals who use the Internet -- e.g. who have access to the
Internet.  And, I agree with Lynn [and others] that the AoC intended to
refer to that broader characterization.  


Does the draft need to make all that clearer in its language?

Thanks Steve for this draft and the work of the BC to provide productive


As an member of the Whois Review Team, I would personally appreciate
support from the BC for the broader definition of "consumer" as a global
Internet user rather than the narrow definition that would limit the
concept of consumers to registrants and ICANN stakeholders. 


I maintain that the broader definition is consistent with language in
other sections of the AOC that refer to "public interest" and "Internet
users" as well as the policy requirement for public availability of
Whois data.


Also, I believe members of the BC have first hand experience with the
UDRP process and a good understanding of the dependency on Whois data
for dispute resolution.  The BC perspective on this specific need for
accurate and reliable Whois data would be helpful in progressing our
