GDPR Roundup: Whois changes

ICANN is working with an EU-based law firm, Hamilton Advokatbyrå, to gather legal advice related to the GDPR’s impacts on the domain name system; this page on the ICANN site will hold analysis from Hamilton as well as related documents. The first part of this analysis was posted on October 16, 2017 and responds to a series of questions that ICANN had laid out. In this response, Hamilton suggested that ICANN should evaluate the purposes for which personal data is being processed (displayed in the Whois). They also confirmed that these purposes could likely be achieved while remaining in compliance with the GDPR by using a gated Whois model , as we discussed in our previous post . We don’t yet know how ICANN will act on this information. Part 2 of the Hamilton analysis, which will look at the GDPR’s broader impact beyond the Whois system, is said to be “coming soon.”
