Registrant Privacy Rights: PETERSON v. NTIA

Briefs will be filed tomorrow in a landmark Internet privacy rights case. The National Telecommunications & Information Administration (NTIA) has ruled to end, on Jan. 26, 2006, all proxy registrations for .us domain websites (such registrations are roughly analogous to unlisted telephone numbers). Although the agency administers only .us domains, the reasons it gives for such ruling could apply to .com, .net, or to any other domain. ICANN registrar GoDaddy.com is circulating a petition against the agency’s ruling. All the gory details can be found here; the petitoner's brief is here.

Updates will follow as soon as they become available.
