Wow, thats impressive. They must have a really large team of special agents ready to swoop on adresses anywhere in the world.
Got a feeling that Mr M.Mouse, Disneyworld, Florida is BIG trouble ;)

Very interesting. I'm still not using my real phone number:)

It'll be a cold day in hell before I give them my phone number to post publicly...
I don't use a landline, only cellular and I'm not about to pay for telemarketers to phone me and waste my time...

Hmmmm, I wonder what will happen to such things like GoDaddy.com's "Private Registration" service? I guess they will have to suspend this service and really annoy all those people (if any) that handed over their hard earned cash for private domain registration.

This is the first thing I thought of when I read this article.
I'm wondering if they can keep it private and domain name info will be sopeaed to pursue these lawsuits.

What happens if someone dosen't have a phone number? Can they make you buy a phone?

Yeah I agree that is awful to make people list their phone number you would think they would be more worried about having a ligit email address. A phone number just means we are bugged by telemarketers, etc.
I think they are only going after people that are sending out viruses or had reports of spamming companies email boxes, otherwise they would have to come after 80% of websites out there.

When you use one of the privacy domain services, they will give out your "private" information for trademark and copyright disputes. It is one of the terms you agree to when you sign up, at least for the ones I have used.

How will they enforce registrations from outside the US?

(the new legislation).....targets only those who lie when submitting data to domain-registration databases and then go on to break federal laws

These bozos in Washington are more interested in protecting commercial interests than they are in protecting our children. It is really a shame that they do not put more of an effort at locking up all the chi1d m0lest0r5 and ped0phi1e5 instead.
