Journal Article on Domain Proxy Services


Front page article in today’s Wall Street Journal entitled “New Services Are Making It Easier To Hide Who Is Behind Web Sites” (paid sub required), describing the rise of domain proxy services to shield whois data.  I don’t think that proxy services are inherently evil – the services tend to cooperate with legitimate requests from third parties.  I think a larger problem is that ICANN’s enforcement mechanism against false whois data relies on voluntary compliance from registrars.
