ICANN Opens Comment Period on Revised Telnic Contract Amendment

19 October 2007
 ICANN is opening a public comment period on revised contract changes to
alter the terms for the public display of Whois information in the .TEL
Registry Agreement. A comment period on the Telnic proposal was initially
conducted from 11 May 2007 through 28 June 2007. Following the ICANN meeting
in San Juan, ICANN and Telnic engaged in ongoing discussions to reach
resolution of Telnic's Whois proposal. Based on input received from the
community, ICANN and Telnic discussed the proposed contract changes and
Telnic significantly amended its original proposal. In addition, ICANN is
engaged in consultations with the U.K. Information Commissioner's Office to
understand the reported conflict between UK Privacy Law and the requirements
of the ICANN registry agreement with Telnic.

The revised proposal includes an amendment to Appendix S, Part VI of the
.TEL Registry Agreement. Under the revised proposal, Telnic will continue to
publish full Whois information for legal persons. Telnic will collect from
registrars full Whois information for natural persons, but only limited
information will be displayed. Requestors seeking full contact information
for natural persons may use a secure Special Access Service to obtain
non-public data.

A copy of the proposed amendment to Appendix S is available at
http://www.icann.org/tlds/agreements/tel/appendix-s-19oct07.pdf [PDF, 77K],
and a copy of the proposed amendment to the .TEL Registry Agreement is
available at
[PDF, 25K]. Comments on the revised contract amendments may be submitted to
telnic-whois-proposal at icann.org until 10 November 2007 23:59 UTC and may be
viewed at http://forum.icann.org/lists/telnic-whois-proposal/. All
documentation regarding this proposed contract change and corresponding
comment forum has been previously posted as part of the Registry Services
Evaluation Process at http://www.icann.org/registries/rsep/#2007004. The
previous comment period can be viewed at
