Subject: Federal Agency Nixes Your Right to Privacy
Date: 3/30/2005 7:42:54 A.M. Eastern Daylight Time
Dear Valued Go Daddy Customer,
Today I have the unfortunate responsibility of informing you
that there has been a decision made by bureaucrats of a
Federal agency that takes away your right to privacy as
guaranteed by the United States Constitution.
This decision was unilaterally made by the National
Telecommunications and Information Association ("NTIA")
www.ntia.doc.gov without hearings that would
determine the impact on those affected, and delivered without
notice — in short, the NTIA decision was made without due
process of any kind. This is exactly how our government is not
supposed to work.
The effect of this decision is to disallow new private domain
name registrations on .US domain names. In addition, if you
already own a private .US domain name registration, you will
be forced to forfeit your privacy no later than January 26,
2006. By that time, you will need to choose between either
making your personal information available to anyone who wants
to see it, or giving up your right to that domain name.
I personally find it ironic that our right to .US privacy was
stripped away, without due process, by a federal government
agency — an agency that should be looking out for our
individual rights. For the NTIA to choose the .US extension is
the ultimate slap in your face. .US is the only domain name
that is specifically intended for Americans (and also those
who have a physical presence in our great country). So think
about this for a moment. These bureaucrats stripped away the
privacy that you're entitled to as an American, on the only
domain name that says that you are an American. I am outraged
by this — you should be also.
If, like me, you are outraged at the NTIA's decision to strip
away our constitutional right to privacy,
www.TheDangerOfNoPrivacy.com will provide you with
a petition to sign. (Only your name will be published, your
address and email information will be kept private.) This Web
site also provides a very easy way for you to send either a
fax or an email, expressing your outrage, to your
Congressperson and Senators. This is all provided at no cost
to you. All that is required is for you to take the time to
www.TheDangerOfNoPrivacy.com sign the petition, and
send the fax or email to your legislators.
On my personal Blog,
www.BobParsons.com there are a number of articles
where you can learn more about the NTIA's unfortunate decision
and what you can do to help get it reversed.
I also will be talking about our right to privacy on Radio Go
Daddy, our weekly radio show that debuts today, March 30, at 7
PM PST. To find out how to listen in, please visit the Web
site dedicated to the show,
You can be sure that I, and everyone at GoDaddy.com, will do
everything in our power to get the NTIA decision reversed.
However, we need your help. Please visit
www.TheDangerOfNoPrivacy.com to sign the petition
and express your feelings to your Congressperson and Senators.
