    This is essentially US law

    User #3243 Info | http://www.cavebear.com/
    Aside from the aspect that this law of non-privacy in .us applies to all of .us and not merely .kids.us, I wonder what parents will think when they discover that when their kids put up their own web sites in .us - or in .kids.us - that they will have to publish their addresses and phone numbers to anyone and everyone who might want to take a look.

    I know women who have been stalked based on whois data. Who will be the first child molested or kidnapped because their address and phone number are required to be published on a public registry? To me this sounds like Megan's law in reverse.

    Michael Palage has no clue. See the .info fiasco.

    "NeuStar shall incorporate into the Whois Accuracy Portal a contractual requirement that third parties submitting Whois accuracy inquiries acknowledge that the submission is not intended to interfere with the lawful operations of the domain name registrant or registrar..."

    Is anyone foolish enough to believe that if someone wanted to interefere they would be truthful about it?

    There are many issues, such as how many times will a registrant be harrassed by submissions? At what point will registrars determine that the cost to administer this policy reaquires an increase in cost to registrants? If the registry's or registrar's interface has problems or a registrant is unavailable due to travel or business - or even circumstances beyond his control, such as involuntary email address changes - is the registrant to be continually harrassed?

    Define innaccurate.
