I'm with you -- I think -- if you change "rights violation" to something
more general. Fraud and bad-faith uses of domain names is not limited to
the appropriation of trademarks. That may dominate the current industry and
governement discourse within ICANN but it doesn't IMO reflect the kind of
end-user-generated problems that John has been indicating.

If your intent is to limit access to WHOIS to the investigation of
trade-name abuse, I can't go along with that narrow a definition.
