I think it facilitates discussion, you disagree, that's up to you, but I think the reactions of the list so far suggest that it does. Anyway, I merely suggested it would help, I didn't request any information. > The RIPE reports on this issue are worthless and the reasons are > explained at: > > http://whoissecurity.com/europeans-restrict-ip-address-whois-data/ > http://whoissecurity.com/historical-whois-data-and-privacy-laws/ > > As for the whois scraping and the packaging and resale of whois data see > > http://whoissecurity.com/historical-whois-data-look-who-sells-it/ > > So as you can see the issues are already researched to a certain extent > but I am sure things have been missed. And as I mentioned the community have asked for a more detailed response from the NCC and I'm hoping to have timelines for this soon. This request came directly from conversation on this list. > Please use the form submission at the site since I do not monitor this > list all the time.
