Public Interest Registry on WHOIS

The Public Interest Registry has published “Whois .ORG: A Two-Year Report From Public Interest Registry.”

Excerpt: Originally, WHOIS data was made publicly available to give network operators a way to contact each other. As the Internet and the number of domain name holders (registrants) have grown, however, this justification for making WHOIS data publicly available no longer applies. PIR and its Advisory Council, therefore, are actively participating in proceedings to advocate for appropriate changes to the WHOIS contract requirements.
