ICANN proposals on private domain registration rattle home-based businesses
Electronic Frontier Foundation, in an article by Nadia Kayyali and Mitch Stoltz, has reported on a letter to ICANN protesting its plans to abridge its private domain name registration policy, article July 7here
I had reported this earlier on the ID theft blog June 24.
EFF discusses the need for private registration on the part of some small business owners and individual; speakers out of the concern over future harassment or intimidation by “doxing”.
But it is possible to reduce the risk by registering to a UPS store (anything that it is considered a legitimate “land address”).
The letter was signed by Laura Poitras, who filmed the riveting documentary on Edward Snowden.
