Well, LIR addresses are already published on the RIPE NCC's website. LIR's customers addresses may not be part of whois.ripe.net... well... i know some LIRs tend to protect their customers identity, to prevent competitors to approach them with better contractual conditions (this is not the case of the LIR i work for, which is a NREN) > At this point I am asking whether you support a proposal, the clarifies > that only the legal address of companies will be published, and that > states clearly that individuals information will be protected?

However, i wonder what should be the procedure if RIPE NCC finds that company X registers a new company Y in a different country/economy resorting to a "virtual office" address. > Looking forward to hear the feedback to this idea for an amendment to the proposal.
