 Hi Alan and all,
It is not that I agree or disagree but with regard to the geographic location of the registrant I see that the question was posed incorrectly from the beginning. The location of the registrant alone does not determine whether GDPR applies or not, the location of the controller or the processor is what matters in this regard. I see this as an unnecessary debate, registrants trying to avoid those who combat cyber crime will register with European based registrars/re-sellers.

 At the moment we are quite divided on this issue.  If you cannot be 
on the CPWG call in 2 1/2 hours, please comment here. We need to 
report back to the EPDP on Thursday.
