Thanks for this Carlton. 

The ICO asks a very good  question  regarding the enforcement of the
regulation outside the EU. This is very relevant to the WHOIS issue. 
What could be done to force a a registrar or a registry outside the EU
to comply with the regulation ?  The answer will be interesting.
Obviously, agreements like Safe Harbor have shown their limits.  

And wouldn't it be nice if all web sites asked so politely as the ICO's
for permission to store  a cookie on your computer ?
