>After reading that page, I still cannot see a direct relevance to the NCC's services or procedures. I believe DomainTools.com also downloads the RIR's whois database and repackages and sells the data along with historical whois data from the domain registrars. Isn't that related to the Data Protection Task Force legal framework? The report says certain procedures and policies were put in place to prevent downloads because it supposedly violates some type of data protection laws. Yet there is a company doing that and they don't seem to be concerned about the law and they seem to be freely selling the data. Do these Data Protection laws actually apply to this situation or are these laws being broken and not enforced? Or maybe some other explanation? It is all unclear to me.
