RE: [dow1-2tf] Moving forward on "conspicuous notice"?
I support Thomas' approach as well, as amended by Steve.
In order to move things forward, plz see below a revised version of Thomas' proposal.
I suggest that we declare "rough consensus", adopt this proposal, and put it all behind us.

I support Thomas' approach here. It includes some specific, concrete recommendations which sound reasonably implementable.
Objective: Increase registrant awareness of WHOIS.
Success Metric: Significant increase of registrant awareness of WHOIS, as measured by an appropriate process to be adopted by ICANN, e.g.,either self-reporting by registrars, or data reviewed by ICANN staff (or outside contractor) through the registration process or a representative sample
1. Registrars must ensure that disclosures regarding availability and third-party access to personal data associated with domain names actually be presented to registrants during the registration process. Linking to an external web page is not sufficient.
2. Registrars must ensure that these disclosures are set aside from other provisions of the registration agreement if they are presented to registrants together with that agreement. Alternatively, registrars may present data access disclosures separate from the registration agreement.
3. Registrars must obtain a separate acknowledgement from registrants that they have read, understood and consented to these disclosures.
