Privacy of Internet Domain Names
An article written by Dugie Stadeford entitled "Privacy of Internet domain names unresolved" has been published on the Public Interest Registry website. The article is a great overview of the WHOIS dispute that has plagued ICANN since its inception. By the way, don't expect a resolution anytime soon (as consensus on this issue will never emerge within ICANN as long as the Intellectual Property Constituency remains a pig-headed foe opposed to any change). The archives of the never-ever-ending WHOIS Task Force may be read here.
