ARIN welcomes feedback and discussion about the following policy
proposal in the weeks leading to the ARIN Public Policy and Members
meetings in Miami, scheduled for October 28 - 31, 2001. All feedback
received on the mailing lists about this policy proposal will be
included in the discussions that will take place in Miami.
ARIN currently provides a bulk copy of WHOIS output only to organizations
that will use the data for technical research purposes and sign an
acceptable use policy. Point of contact information is excluded from
these bulk copies.
APNIC and RIPE NCC provide bulk copies of their WHOIS output on their
FTP sites for any organization that wishes to obtain the data providing
they agree to the acceptable use policy that accompanies the data.
Proposal: It is proposed ARIN provide a bulk copy of WHOIS output,
minus point of contact information, on the ARIN FTP site
for download by any organization that wishes to obtain the
data providing they agree to ARIN's acceptable use policy
that would accompany the data.
This policy proposal discussion will take place on the database
working group mailing list (dbwg at arin.net). Subscription information
is available at http://www.arin.net/members/mailing.htm
