Presented to the Council on behalf of the WHOIS Task Force - The WHOIS Issues Paper on Privacy is a stand-alone document that has been primarily drafted by Marilyn Cade, as co-chair, drawn on the contributions of the Task Force in meetings and previous documents and discussions. While not finally reviewed nor fully debated by all members of the Task Force due to time limitations, the text reflects discussion among several Task Force members on 3/11/03. However, understanding that the Council must have an issues document in order to discuss whether to address an issue, the Issues Report on Privacy is presented to the Council. Task Force members may provide comments on the Issues Report regarding their views. Some Task Force members may chose to contribute separate issues reports, outside of the Task Force. Such contributions may or may not draw on the collaborative work of the Task Force to date.
