Recent WHOIS Report Overlooking Fundamental Issue?
ICANN indirectly controls the mother-of-all personal
database systems. Never, before, has a world-wide
database exposed personally identifying information of
so many to so many. ... With this policy in place, it
is not unlikely that every Internet user one day may
have personal data recorded in ICANN's database as
result of owning a domain name. The management of this
scope of data collection, alone, should be a matter of
far-reaching public concern. Instead, few know about
ICANN, and fewer know what it does. Consequently, the
media has remained relatively mute about this growing
Internet privacy crisis.
