Protection of historical Internet resource registrations

Dear colleagues

APNIC has now implemented proposal prop-018-v001 regarding the
protection of historical Internet resource registrations. Consensus
to implement the proposal was reached at APNIC 17 in February 2004 and
the APNIC EC endorsed the proposal in May 2004.

The proposal document, presentation, minutes, and discussion are
available at:


Policy summary

APNIC has now protected all registrations of historical resources with
the APNIC-HM maintainer, a practice consistent with the management of
current resources.

To ensure integrity of information, APNIC will not update historical
information in the APNIC Whois Database until the resource holder
demonstrates the organisation's right to the resources and enters a
formal agreement with APNIC either as a member or as a non-member
account holder.

Associated fees

APNIC members will not be subject to any additional fees to maintain
historical resources.

APNIC non-member account holders wishing to update resource records
will be subject to an annual US$100 account fee for all historical
resources that are managed under their account name.

Effect on resource holders

The policy does not prevent resource holders from continuing to use
their historical resources.

The US$100 non-member fee only applies if resource holders wish to
update their resource registration in the APNIC Whois Database.

More information

Section 4 of the draft policy document (provisionally active):

-  Policies for historical Internet resources in the APNIC
   Whois Database

 - Guide to the maintenance of historical Internet resources
