Re: I hope ICANN loses completely.

That would be a bad outcome, if you'd like the Internet to run smoothly. And it probably won't happen - ICANN isn't actually planning to violate GDPR by publishing private information. And there isn't redundancy in requesting three contacts: owner (the person ultimately responsible), admin (the person to pay any fees involved), technical (the person to fix operational issues).

ICANN has been arrogant once in a while, but I don't think they've thumbed their nose at anybody's laws. As a corporation, they're bound by the law of their state of incorporation, which happens to be, but so is every corporation
