WHOIS Hearing: Testimony available.

The written testimony from yesterday’s WHOIS hearing is now available online: Timothy Trainer, J. Scott Evans, Rick Wesson, Fraudit Info Sheet submitted by Mr. Wesson, Mark BohannonRick Wesson, by the way, indeed testified what I thought I heared yesterday: I do support the proposed legislation as a step forward and hope it will deter those intent on registering domains with fraudulent contact data. While it might indeed have a deterrent effect, we cannot solely rely on industry regulation to prevent false and invalid registrant data from entering the Whois database. … Please add a requirement that registrars be involved in validating a potentially accurate representation of those they register. Don稚 miss this opportunity to evolve the Internet beyond the wild, wild west toward the safety of any civilized community.
