Don't Call Me a Solo
The Value of Strategy

Interview with John Levine

The WHOIS registry is the domain name systems' legacy database that contains contact information from registrants of Internet domains. Registrants pay an additional fee to keep their information private. Often times,The WhoIs database contains inaccurate or intentionally fraudulent information. The WhoIs privacy debate is a hot topic for those for those interested in domain name registration, privacy rights on the internet, cybersquatting and the domain monetization industry. There are so many different interests involved in the whois issue, that it appears unlikely that ICANN will do anything to change WhoIs database in the near term. Invalid WhoIs data is a problem but there is little being done to fix it.  The WhoIs privacy debate is explained and explored in this interview with leading internet expert John Levine .  Listen to the interview here
