Thanks to Elisa & Steve; AIM fully supports a move towards thick WHOIS.

On page 2, can we please add one bullet:

Requiring a ‘thick’ WHOIS would:

•              improve response consistency,

•              improve stability,

•              improve access to WHOIS data, and

•              provide a more level playing field for competition between Registries.

•              enhance consumer/user protection

Rationale: we’re supposed to be ensuring that the DN system works for the benefit of users – not just registrars/registries. Consumers should have the right to know to whom they are giving their data, including credit card details.

Many thanks for considering the above,

As we've discussed before, there's a PDP (Policy Development Process) underway to consider requiring thick Whois for all gTLD registries — including legacy TLDs such as com and net.

The Working Group published its Initial Report (here<http://gnso.icann.org/en/issues/whois/thick-initial-21jun13-en.pdf%20>), concluding there are more benefits than disadvantages to requiring thick Whois for all gTLD registries. The Working Group recommends that thick Whois services should "become a requirement for all gTLD registries, both existing and future."

Public comment page is here<http://www.icann.org/en/news/public-comment/thick-whois-initial-21jun13-en.htm>.

Elisa Cooper prepared the attached draft of BC comments.

The reply comment period closes 4-Aug-2013, so please Reply All before 2-Aug with edits or questions.

And thanks to Elisa for preparing this draft.
