Both Wendy and Bret point to a recent case in which Go Daddy’s Domains By Proxy cancelled the privacy service upon receipt of a cease and desist letter. Bad enough, it seems like that’s the behaviour Domains By Proxy is designed to show: On the one hand, there’s RAA 3.7.7.3 (I’ll leave a discussion of the peculiarities of this rule to the blogging lawyers), and on the other hand, there’s that quite lengthy section of DBP’s license agreement entitled DBP’s rights to deny, suspend, terminate service and to disclose your personal information.

So, ultimately, all this service gives you is an opportunity not to have your personal information published. It’s not about anonymous registrations or protecting controversial free speech at all.

Louis Touton has published the General Counsel’s Analysis Regarding Challenge to Non-Commercial Users Constituency Election of GNSO Council Representatives. That analysis concludes that it would not be appropriate, based on Mr. Younger’s challenge, to set aside the written designation of the NCUC’s GNSO Council representatives.

The analysis also contains a number of Additional Observations which seem to hint at some doubts about the NCUC’s functioning as a constituency, and suggest that a redesign of the constituency may be appropriate.

The Aggregator Is Back.

I’ve revived the aggregator — it’s a site where you can find an aggregated version of a bunch of weblogs (possibly?) relevant to ICANN issues.
