Re: [nc-whois] bulk access / european privacy protection briefing opportunity


Sounds great, and most interesting, would it however not be interesting to
see if we can get someone from Nominet UK to participate to, maybe they can
explain what they have in mind when changes they are planning are not in
line with the EU guidelines.?

I am ofcourse not sure i can get someone to attend, but i can at least place
a call or two and see what comes up, if anyone thinks this is a good idea
