Re: [nc-whois] Summary: Comments on Accuracy.

An addition to the previous summary:


This comment, submitted by Paul Stahura from eNom on November 14,  
argues that "requiring whois data to be verified at time of renewal  
will require development and extra cost." He doubts that this will  
lead to an improvement, but on the other hand believes that a  
periodic reminder to update whois data may be a good idea.

Mr. Stahura also points to a possible interaction between better  
searchability and accuracy: Better searchability of the WHOIS  
database, he argues, would increase the motivation of good faith  
registrants to provide bad data.

He also asks for definitions of "incorrect" or "inaccurate" WHOIS 

The comments on the graduated sanctions proposal are based on the  
understanding that the fines suggested would be $ 1000 per domain  
name found to have incorrect data.
