The Com Laude guide to WHOIS and GDPR - are you prepared?

May 2018 newsletter - The Com Laude guide to WHOIS and GDPR - are you prepared? 

We hope this special edition newsletter will serve as a practical guide to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and what the changes will mean for the domain name space, including WHOIS records and online brand protection efforts, as of 25 May 2018. 
While the GDPR has been years in the making, its enforcement deadline has crept up rapidly, seemingly catching many (including ICANN) unprepared. There remains considerable uncertainty as to how domain name policymakers, registrars and brand protection specialists will adapt in order to comply with the new regulations, as well as what the changes will mean for brand owners seeking to protect and enforce their rights online. This guide assesses the present state of the industry and the plans for compliance as they are currently known. We do expect to see further clarity in the coming weeks, and will be in touch with further updates as and when answers to the outstanding questions emerge.
