In most cases, that would correspond to what privacy advocates call opt in. However, if the ISP chose as a default to list the customer, and the customer contractually agreed to this, they would have to opt-out to achieve privacy. Both scenarios are legitimate under U.S. law, though Canada may be different.
I disagree with this completely. There should be no default setting
at ARIN at any rate. ISP's use templates for SWIPS and if one wants to
"default" the privacy bit they can do it in their shop.
How the ISP handles this between the customer and them is their own
business, if they want to do an "opt-in" or "opt-out" privacy on SWIPs
that is entirely within their own control.
But, each SWIP submittal to ARIN should be explicit as to how it's setup.
