Why Is My Domain’s Whois Information Public?

Why Is My Domain’s Whois Information Public?
WHOIS is a public database containing the contact information of all registered and active domains and their owners.
ICANN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) is the authority binding all domain registrars to make newly registered domains and their contact information publicly available.
This public information is best used when verifying a domain ownership or, for example, when the domain is transferred or is being investigated for illegal activities on the Internet such as copyright violations, etc.
