CIRA - Proposed Policy for Internet Domain Name Privacy

CIRA (the Canadian Internet Registration Authority, the body that registers the Canadian domain .ca) today released a draft policy to restrict information available to the public from its "Whois" directory in a bid to give domain owners increased privacy. See the press release: NEW POLICY TO SET STANDARD FOR INTERNET DOMAIN NAME PRIVACY. Public comments are being taken via a web form until January 12, 2005.

I also posted this message to CALL's e-list and received back a comment from someone that they did not receive notice about this despite holding two .ca domain names! It is worthwhile, therefore, to let anyone you know with a .ca website know about this. Very surprising they did notify their stakeholders!
