Congressman Bob Latta (R-OH05)serves on the Energy and Commerce Committee as the Republican Leader on the Communications and Technology Subcommittee.
Last week he published a House resolution with regards to WHOIS.
“Being able to look up who owns and operates a website is not just a tool necessary for public transparency, but it is essential for safety,” said Latta.
“Law enforcement and businesses use WHOIS information to facilitate consumer protection on the internet, protect privacy, combat illegal online drug sales, enforce intellectual property laws, identify and stop human trafficking, as well as defend our national security interests.
WHOIS information helps to keep people accountable for what they do and put online, and we must be able to continue to utilize this critical information so that our Internet is safe and secure for all Americans.”
