WHOIS Task Force 3 Teleconference September 22, 2004 - Minutes
GNSO Constituency representatives:
Brian Darville stated there was no agreement in the discussion but Bruce Tonkin put forward some ideas that he as a registrar and Ross Rader as the Registrar constituency representative on the task force could agree to. However, from an Intellectual Property Constituency point of view Brian Darville had problems with the propositions.
: "184.108.40.206 A Registered Name Holder's willful provision of inaccurate or unreliable information, its willful failure promptly to update information provided to Registrar, or its failure to respond for over fifteen calendar days to inquiries by Registrar concerning the accuracy of contact details associated with the Registered Name Holder's registration shall constitute a material breach of the Registered Name Holder-registrar contract and be a basis for cancellation of the Registered Name registration."
Frannie Wellings agreed with data verification after a complaint and felt it would be a wasted effort to verify data at the time of registration and asked how would one differentiate between a mistake and purposeful inaccurate data.
Ross Rader requested that the whole line of discussion be killed but that deferring the issue each time was not satisfactory.
Brian Darville referred to item 2 and suggested verifying more data elements at this point, to which Ross Rader commented that there was a moderately accurate data base, every indication showed that all the steps that have been taken to increase accurate data have been effective and was not sure that there was the degree of inaccuracy that some people presumed. The requirement/drive/need for further accuracy should be identified.
(3) Extra steps to investigate inaccuracy
Brian Darville suggested continuing the discussion on the next task force call and encouraged task force members to express their positions regarding verifying email contact data at the time of registration.
Next week 29 September 2004
