Re: Palage in the NYT - Now to be clear, the Registrar Accreditation Agreement does provide for rights in data after the fact (post-transfer to a new registrar), but Mike's question is still very valid - where did they get the data from? While I'm more interested in what they are doing with it, the fact remains that there are any number of parties that are harvesting the whois - those that engage in this behavior don't enjoy the same rights in the data that they collect as do those who collected the data during the normal course of business (ie - registering domain names) as provided for under the Registrar Accreditation Agreement.
