    Privacy Data Protection Law Finally Arrives at ICANN
    posted by Mueller on Thursday March 04 2004, @12:19AM

    The Secretary General of the Italian Data Protection Authority, Giovanni Buttarelli, criticized ICANNís Whois policy development process in Rome today (March 4), noting that data Protection authorities have not been sufficiently involved in Whois discussions. Buttarelli drafted the recent Italian data protection law and was a member of the European Unionís Article 29 Data Protection Working Party that drafted the 13 June 2003 Opinion On the application of data protection principles to the Whois directories. That statement, which ICANNís staff and GNSO failed to mention at the Montreal ICANN meeting in June last year, contained strong criticism of ICANNís first Whois task force. Buttarelli charged that ICANNís Montreal meeting didnít create a real opportunity to discuss the application of data protection principles.

    Buttarelli was invited to speak by the Noncommercial Users Constituency. The NCUC and the Registrars constituencies also held a joint meeting at which the European Unionís George Papapavlou spoke on the application of European data protection principles to the Whois database. Papapavlou stressed the need to define the purpose of the Whois database before making any policies regarding what data should be in it and what access to it should be granted.
