RE: [nc-whois] bulk access / European privacy protection briefing opportunity

Thank you, Thomas. 

Tony and I will be formalizing to the TF a memo which outlines a bit further the calendar we talked about on our call this week.   I know that several of the TF members were concerned about seeing the work timeline outlined in detail and with specific dates.  That memo is work in progress from the notes which I took on the call and can't be completed until the week end.

We will include this session as one of the suggestions.  

I believe that the way that this particular session is outlined, we would clearly learn from this experience, even though we may not have completed our work.

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

I have just talked to Lukas Gundermann from the Center for Data 
Protection of the State of Schleswig-Holstein (Germany).  He'd be 
willing to give the Task Force a briefing, during a conference call, 
on the legal questions surrounding the European Data Protection 
Directive and WHOIS policy.  We have agreed that the task force 
contacts him at some point next week to settle the details of such a 
conference call.

My suggestion would be that we set up a joint call of the Task Force 
with Louis Touton and Mr Gundermann.  

I would imagine the following agenda for the call:

 - Brief presentation of current policy; key issues from the Verizon 
   (Louis Touton; 20min)
 - The European directive; conclusions from the directive with 
   respect to current whois policy.  Focus on bulk access and the 
   questions created by the Verizon case.
   (Lukas Gundermann; 40min?)
 - Possibly: A presentation from a European CNO registrar on how 
   this is handled in reality.
 - Possibly: A brief presentation of the .de whois policy, which may  
   illustrate what a conformant whois policy may look like.
 - Questions and discussion.

What do you think?  If there are no objections against this agenda,  
I would suggest that Marilyn (or her staff) sends it to Mr 
Gundermann and Louis early next week to hammer out any remaining 
details with them, and starts scheduling the call as soon as 

I suppose that an MP3 recording of such a conference call would be  
useful for all parties involved.
