ICANN Planning to Close Domain Database Open Access

Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) regulators have proposed a change in how the system public information database can be accessed. The proposal would restrict access except by specific permission from ICANN.

Critics of the working group's proposal agree that the system is broken, but disagree with the recommendation that the openness of today be replaced with a system that is closed by default.
