Invalid WHOIS Data Study

Hey no! I’m not stalking Ben Edelman, but while reading this case study about invalid whois, I realized he wrote it:

Large-Scale Intentional Invalid WHOIS Data A Case Study of “NicGod Productions” / “Domains For Sale”

It is a dated piece (2002), but still an interesting read. A few weeks ago I posted about Ben’s work with adware/spyware/affiliate hijacking work here:

Another site of interest is ICANNWatch (good start: ICANN Four Beginners. Makes one go hmmmmm doesn’t it. is designed to be a news and comment forum for people interested in questions about the doing of the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers.


I've been trying to find my way online for more years than I care to admit.
