Subject: [bc-gnso] FOR REVIEW: draft BC comment on study of Whois misuse


ICANN posted a  Study
n.pdf>  on Whois Misuse.  


Back in 2009 the BC prompted this study to learn whether "Public access to
WHOIS data leads to a measurable degree of misuse - that is, to actions that
cause actual harm, are illegal or illegitimate, or otherwise contrary to the
stated legitimate purpose."


We discussed this study on our 5-Dec member call.  Three BC members
volunteered to review and draft comments on the study  (Jimson Olufuye,
Susan Kawaguchi, John Berard).


As discussed on our 9-Jan call, their proposed comment is brief and should
be easy for members to do an expedited review before ICANN's due date of


So please review the attached and REPLY ALL with your comments or objections
before 18-Jan-2014.


Thanks again to Jimson, Susan, and John for stepping-up to this.

Vice chair for policy coordination
