I can’t think of any good reason a small business owner should have to publicize her home address just to have a website. Can you?
Right now, website owners can pay a few extra dollars to conceal their private information with WHOIS protection services. Scary guidelines proposed by MarkMonitor would prohibit sites with commercial activity from doing that, forcing business owners to publish their contact information or sharing it with people who complain about the site.
If you’re opposed to these proposed rules and would rather not have your personal information (or anyone else’s) revealed without a court order, email your views to ICANN at [email protected] by July 7th, or use the phone and email tool of another coalition at respectourprivacy.com. You can also sign a petition at savedomainprivacy.org.
