Who had ICANN suing a German registrar over GDPR and Whois? Congrats, it's happening

Re: Controller and Processor

If ICANN are the controller, then they are wilfully breaching the GDPR and admitting it by bringing the case.

If that's the argument they bring, then they are asking the German regulator to immediately impose the highest possible fine.

Howvere amusing that might be, the last missive sent out by ICANN specifically stated that the registrars - in this case Tucows - are the data controllers.
