The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) is supposed to collect contact information for every website that gets registered. That transparency is not being enforced, however, and many sites — especially violent pornography and other seedy content providers — are providing bogus names or using privacy protection services with no repercussions. A former ICANN employee testified before Congress that Whois, the organization's database of contact information, is "substantially fiction." Law enforcement is lobbying ICANN to crack down on this kind of cloaking, but the organization seemingly would rather ignore it. The Washington Post looks at just how hard it is to locate a website's true owner.
