[dow2tf] questions submitted to Counsel
The following questions have been submitted to Counsel on behalf of the taskforce:
If a respondent supplies proprietary information to the taskforce regarding their uses of whois, can that information be presented anonymously?
And, if we are presented with information that indicates someone is using Whois in a manner that is currently prohibited, or violates the AUP of a registrar, will we make use of that information for any other purpose aside from the survey?
Given that this is a public process, what are the implications of changing the process to allow for anonymity after having already received some responses?
Are there effective ways of presenting the final data that doesn't correlate responses with a given respondent, but allows for confidence that the data is represented accurately?
