What's the problem here again?

I wonder. It's not like they want to introduce 100% anonymous registrations, is it?

As far as I understood this, the point is that, much like for car registrations, you can't just check the name and address of the owner of some car - if you have a serious reason to want this information, you'll need to go the legal path.

In which case it won't be very different from what's already happening today: In the recent years I haven't seen many smaller domains which hadn't the owner's information filtered out. Apparently the big difference is it won't depend anymore on the registrar's goodwill, but will be a legal requirement.

Isn't it? (Genuine question)
