>the IP Resource Registry environment is the wrong tree to bark at, I have no idea what points you are trying to make in your replies. You seem to want to nitpick certain words in some sort of incoherent fashion without making any actual point about the issue at hand. Ripe posted a link to a report about putting restrictions on the whois data because they say use is restricted by law. I pointed out that commercial companies are using this data anyway. In the case of DomainTools.com they have been around for many years and anyone who has used the site knows they compile all this data and make reports. They focus on domain data but they also use the IP whois data (which you can easily see if you use their site). I can't tell exactly what the law is and I don't know exactly what commercial companies are doing with the data. Ripe put out the report and I am asking how it relates to the practical situation of what is happening in the real world as there seems to be disconnect.
