[arin-ppml] Policy Proposal: Customer Confidentiality

Yes, I got that backwards. What I'd actually like to see is the ISP set the default (which in most cases would be private), and if customers want to be listed they can do so. 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.
