*** Last Call: Policy Proposal 2002-4 ***
2002-4: Bulk Copies of ARIN's WHOIS
ARIN will provide a bulk copy of WHOIS output, including point of
contact information, on the ARIN site for download by any organization
that wishes to obtain the data providing they agree to ARIN's acceptable
use policy. This point of contact information will not include data
marked as private.
It is also proposed the existing ARIN Bulk WHOIS Acceptable Use
## The ARIN WHOIS data is for Internet operational or technical research
purposes pertaining to Internet operations only. It may not be used for
advertising, direct marketing, marketing research, or similar purposes.
Use of the ARIN WHOIS data for these activities is explicitly forbidden.
ARIN requests to be notified of any such activities or suspicions
...be applied in the implementation of any policy that results from this
policy proposal with the addition of the following text:
Redistributing bulk ARIN WHOIS data is explicitly forbidden. It is
permissible to publish the data an individual query or small number of
queries at a time, as long as reasonable precautions are taken to
prevent automated querying by database harvesters.
