ICANN, which oversees domain names on the Internet, keeps track of who owns which website, and until now has made a lot of that information publicly available. In order to comply with new EU privacy rules, ICANN is going to reduce the amount of information available to all but as- yet-to-be-determined accredited group.
Good luck tracking down the source of hacking or intellectual property theft, which isn’t easy even now. On the other hand, won’t keeping secret who owns a website in a country with less press freedoms increase the amount of governmental transparency? Who decides these issues?
