Anonymity for Site Owners May End

At the moment, if you want to register a web address, you must provide your contact details. However, many domain registration services allow to keep this data private by providing their own contact details for Whois queries, which are the directory look-ups for web addresses.


Now Icann, the agency coordinating the Internet’s infrastructure, has suggested to end that practice and make any commercial website ineligible for proxy registrations. However, the Electronic Frontier Foundation criticized a plan to end anonymity for website owners. It believes that such move may put users at risk of harassment and identity theft.

Privacy advocates are arguing that the risks to website owners to suffer from harassment, intimidation and identity theft outweigh any benefits of the move. In particular, the EFF claims that the option of anonymous speech protects people with unpopular opinions, who in this case don’t fear harm. Besides, anonymity protects whistleblowers exposing crime and corruption.

On the other hand, Icann’s proposal is backed by the American entertainment industry. This is not surprising, as the content industry has long been critical of anonymity online, claiming that many domain registrations “lurk in the shadows of the public Whois, via an unregulated proxy registration system that is the antithesis of transparency”. The entertainment industry calls to bring domain registrations into the sunlight, pointing out that although there’s a legitimate role for proxy registrations in some cases, the current system can be manipulated to make it impossible to identify people responsible for abusive domain name registrations.

The proposal is backed by 6 copyright industry agencies that represent the music, gaming, software and movie industries, and also Time Warner and Disney. In response, domain registrar Namecheap started to encourage supporters to email Icann and object to the move; besides, the registrar has put together RespectOurPrivacy.com and offers to call people to walk them through the process. Namecheap claims that the privacy of its customers should be protected, regardless of whether their websites are commercial or not. If you want your confidential info to stay confidential, it’s time to tell Icann.

Darkan9el avatarI wonder if such transparency works for the wealthy too, for the politicians, for the corporates, for the and I hate this phrase "ruling classes" if you have one rule for the internet that rule applies to all without exception, as soon as it is removed through privilege it becomes discriminatory because those that are excluded from that rule have an advantage.

Personally I think it's another idiot rule in the making and you have every right to your privacy.

They should have a rule that no rule can infringe on your privacy.

No avatarjust look at the people supporting this rule change. the only thing that could make it any clearer that this is bad news for the public is if hitler signed onto it too.

Biggest_Baddest_Wolf avatarI actually would fully support this if it went far enough.
I want this to happen, provided that people must publically post their full name, current physical residency address, bank account data, SSN, names and breeds of any pets, names of spouses/signifficant others, names of their children and parents in the website's footer.
And in case a website's domain is registered to a corporation or other organized legal entity, this information must apply to anyone with a leading function in that entity - the fatcats, the board of directors, the presidents, the share-holders...
I'm pretty sure however that the entertainment industry whores would quickly stop calling for such transparency once it's about -their- names and shit becoming public property.

Perhaps we could contact these folks and let them know how nice it is to have details publicly posted. Be sure to give Vice President of Domestic Counsel and Super Lawyer Ms. Orit a big et hug n kiss.

analogkid6103 avatarWith the supporters it has I must be opposed. Anything that is favored by the enemy's of sharing cannot be good.
