FOLLOWUP: Querying Large Number of Whois Records?
Spencer, I found the minutes for the ARIN meeting at which the proposal I was referring to was passed. I think my last post mis-represented the policy, so here are the minutes for your enjoyment: Policy Proposal 7 (Bulk copies of ARIN WHOIS DB) | Presentation Richard Jimmerson stated the policy proposal and moderated the discussion that followed. It is proposed ARIN provide a bulk copy of WHOIS output, minus point of contact information, on the ARIN FTP site for download by any organization that wishes to obtain the data providing they agree to ARIN's acceptable use policy that would accompany the data. An attendee commented that as long as the proposed policy retains the minus POC language, that he had no objections. There was further discussion about how the AUP would be agreed to. The language of the current proposal states that the AUP would be attached to the data and that an individual who downloaded it would agree to the AUP by default. One attendee expressed that they felt the requestor of the data should physically sign the AUP and that ARIN should keep this documentation on file. The attendees of the meeting were asked if they supported the policy proposal, as written. Yeas: majority Nays: 2
