Policy Proposal 2008-7
Whois Integrity Policy Proposal

On 17 September 2008 ARIN held a Public Policy Meeting at its Caribbean
Sector Meeting in Nassau, Bahamas, to discuss active policy proposals in
the ARIN region and gain a Caribbean perspective on ARIN policies and

Leo Bicknell, as a representative of the ARIN Advisory Council,
presented the proposal and its rationale. Some meeting participants
expressed statements of support for the proposal, saying that ARIN
should recoup costs for services, and in addition, ARIN should have
contracts with those it provides services to. Some meeting participants
stated their disfavor, saying that the intended outcome, better WHOIS
data, would not result. One attendee noted that the proposal seemed more
geared towards getting the RSA signed vs. WHOIS integrity. The Advisory
Council received a report summarizing the policy discussion for use in
its deliberations.
