What is my duty to keep the information in my WHOIS record current?

Your registrar maintains a public database of contact information for all of the domain names it maintains. This database is known as a WHOIS database, and it is available to be searched by members of the public in order to allow rapid resolution of technical problems and to permit enforcement of consumer protection, trademark, and other laws. Your domain name registration agreement with your registrar requires that you keep this information accurate and current.
