Quote of the day: the future of whois

There are two communities with logics potentially at odds : on the one hand, those who see that Whois data is now used for other purposes than its original one and would like to see it more accurate and widely accessible because it is useful for them; on the other hand, those who see that some of the present uses may be illegitimate - even illegal - when considering some national laws, particularly regarding privacy protection, and that there is also potential for abuses, and who would like as a consequence to see access restricted.
- Bertrand de La Chapelle, January 2007
