I am in general opposed to this proposal.  There are good and valid reasons
for making direct contacts for a network discoverable.  If a host runs amok
and is causing grave problems then I need to be able to contact the person
responsible for that host.  I do not need to find a contact for someone
three tiers up who will contact someone else who will contact someone who
will contact the host owner.

> This proposal is in the first stage of the Policy Development Process.

> less than 10 days, then the period may be extended to the subsequent

> 1. Policy Proposal Name: Customer Confidentiality
> 
> 2. Proposal Originator: Aaron Wendel
> 
> 3. Proposal Version: 1.0
> 
> 4. Date: 9 June 2009
> 
> 5. Proposal type: new
> 
> 6. Policy term: permanent
> 
> 7. Policy statement:
> 
> ISPs may choose to enter their own address and phone number in
> reassignments and reallocations in lieu of the customer's address and
> phone number.  The customer's actual information must be provided to
> ARIN on request and will be held in the strictest confidence.
> 
> 8. Rationale:
> 
> Customer contact lists are one of the most proprietary and confidential
> pieces of information in any business.  The requirements for ISPs to
> publish those lists via SWIP or RWHOIS runs contrary to good business
> practices and invites competitors and others to solicit both individuals
> and companies receiving reassignments and sub allocations from upstream
> providers.
> 
> 9. Timetable for implementation: immediate
