ARIN Public Policy Meeting:ARIN XIV
ARIN Advisory Council:21 October 2004
ARIN Board of Trustees:BoT Meetings
Increasing concern about protection of private information on the Internet has been expressed by many parts of the community. There have been numerous policy proposals over the last several years attempting to protect various portions of the displayed information. Concern has been expressed specifically about the requirement to publicly register customer assignments, which are often regarded by ISPs and customers as private information.
By publicly displaying reassignment information, the ISP is in some respects displaying its customer lists and other information that may be considered of a proprietary business interest.
