>> Internet users, world wide.

>> to take.
>>
>> *Third party access*
>>
>> Specifically, the draft refers several times to access to data by third
>> parties who would become 'accredited users'. Who are they going to be? How
>> shall they be defined, world-wide? Who will accredit them?
>>
>> Thus, we have 'intellectual property lawyers' and 'accredited parties'
>> (p.2). Later, (p.3) we have 'a finite list of types of third parties …
>> [which] should not be exhaustive … and needs to be fairly limited'. Which
>> are suggested to be 'just examples'. There seems to be some internal
>> contradiction here.
>>
>> From a global perspective there is arguably a serious problem of
>> definition and coherence among this terminology. Notably in the event of
>> 'global access' (p.5); so that a Registrar in country A, would have to give
>> access to an 'accredited' third party from country B, that the Registrar
>> may not know and may not trust.
>>
>> *Eligibility*
>>
>> In an ideal world one might give credence to the ability of a multi
>> stakeholder process to deliver criteria for eligibility. However, the fact
>> is that the ICANN multi stakeholder community is still highly biassed
>> towards the interests of certain countries and certain stakeholders. Most
>> governments, world-wide, are quite unlikely to accept criteria and
>> identified Eligible User Groups as determined by the ICANN multi
>> stakeholder community as it is currently constituted. Particularly if the
>> process in question is designed to minimise the information and influence
>> of the governments concerned. Furthermore, ALAC should be careful what it
>> asks for; I would have serious doubts as to the capacity or interest of our
>> At Large Structures (ALS) to reliably identify such Eligible Users in all
>> their respective countries. It would of course be out of the question for
>> stakeholders in third countries to identify their preferred Eligible User
>> Groups in another jurisdiction.
>>
>> The Framework's examples of Eligible User Groups is so broad as to amount
>> almost to 'everyone concerned'. The effect of such a wide scope would be to
>> dilute any possibility of effectively restricting access to personal data,
>> and to considerably aggravate the possibility of creating any such 'finite
>> list' of Eligible Users, as referred to above.
>>
>> *Bulk Access*
>>
>> It has been notorious for more than two decades that bulk access to Whois
>> by agents and third parties has been one of the more egregious breaches of
>> European data protection laws by ICANN.
>>
>> Now it has got to stop.
>>
>> Clearly, Whois data obtained legitimately must not be forwarded to
>> unauthorised third parties (p.7) nor agglomerated to create a shadow Whois.
>> However, these observations in the draft beg the question as to how much
>> Whois data has already been accessed in bulk, agglomerated and forwarded to
>> third parties? If so, has the data been deleted?
>>
>> Furthermore, the very existence of this process in ICANN is probably
>> creating an existential incentive to get and keep as much Whois data as
>> possible before GDPR related restrictions are finally introduced by ICANN.
>> Registries and Registrars should be instructed to suspend all bulk access
>> forthwith, if they have not already done so.
>>
>> * * * *
>>
>> In conclusion and in short, the combination – in this draft – of broad
>> and vague authorisation, eligibility of third parties and bulk access,
>> would amount to re-creating the *status quo ante *by any other name.
>> Which would be interpreted elsewhere as a rejection of the requirements of
>> GDPR.
