"Fundamentally, ICANN is arguing that there are exceptions in GDPR that say data collection is allowed when it is a "necessity for the performance of a contract" – and the Whois clause in its contract qualifies for such a protection."

Data collection might be. Publishing it without explicit opt in permission isn't.
