U.S. Bypassing ICANN on Whois Privacy With Closed-Door Meeting in Paris

Despite positive discussions currently underway at the ICANN54 meetings in Dublin regarding protection of privacy services for domain name registrants, another meeting in Paris seems to be contradicting the efforts, EFF reports. "… the United States is in the middle of a closed-door meeting in Paris that will contradict everything that the ICANN community has painstakingly agreed. At this week's meeting of the Committee on Consumer Policy of the of the OECD (Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, a club of developed countries), the United States is pushing through language for a new revision of the OECD E-commerce Recommendation that would require domain name registration information to be made publicly available for websites that are promoting or engaged in commercial transactions with consumers."
