RE: [dow1-2tf] WHOIS TF 1/2
The proposal for access is somewhat broader than "court order"
We will disclose personal information, other than via the WHOIS, as stated below, and the "Registration Information Access Rules and Procedures", as explained above, only:
(a) in the event that a law enforcement agency, court of competent jurisdiction, tribunal, judicial board, administrative body, judicial commission, or any other judicial body of competent jurisdiction requests personal information by way of an order, ruling, decision, subpoena, warrant, or judgment;
(b) pursuant to the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act S.C. 2000, c. 5; or
(c) if the domain name is subject to a proceeding under the CIRA Dispute Resolution Policy, to the relevant Dispute Resolution Provider.

This proposal is for tiered access in the sense that registrars have access to more data than the public, but not beyond that. Specifically the only method for access by non-registrar businesses, consumers, intellectual property owners, or law enforcement would be by court order.
