    It's all here...

    "...until ICANN establishes a different policy according to Section 4, Registrar shall permit use of data it provides in response to queries for any lawful purposes except to: (a) allow, enable, or otherwise support the transmission by e-mail, telephone, or facsimile of mass, unsolicited, commercial advertising or solicitations to entities other than the data recipient's own existing customers; or (b) enable high volume, automated, electronic processes that send queries or data to the systems of any Registry Operator or ICANN-Accredited registrar, except as reasonably necessary to register domain names or modify existing registrations."

    The rest of the terms above that don't directly quote from the RAA are simply the penalties put forward if you don't comply with these restrictions.

    ...and yes I work for Tucows...

    >They're providing me with the terms of use AFTER >they've provided the information

    Care to suggest how they would supply these terms before you submit the search, especially when you're you're searching through another registrar's whois?

    As already noted by others this isn't unique to TuCows, and using a direct tool I've been kicked off the likes of .mil for excessive queries, I think I was up to 5. -g
