The Globe on Terror Goes Digital by Michael Geist

Michael Geist imageLast week’s story from Canada’s Globe and Mail on Canada’s and’s contribution to terrorism is put in its place by Professor Michael Geist. Geist makes four points ridiculing the Globe’s position.

These points are that just because registrant information is not made publicly available doesn’t mean it’s not collected, offering proxy or anonymous registrations is not only a issue, “the article mistakenly states that the terror sites reside on servers in Yarmouth” and finally “it is telling that the story does not include a single mention of WHOIS related issues, including the long policy process aimed at providing registrants with greater privacy protection (and thereby eliminating the need for these services).”
