ICANN has not said that at all. They are proposing a new rule that commercial sites no longer use domain privacy. Implementing that rule is being widely opposed.

Quote:
Under new guidelines proposed by MarkMonitor and others who represent the same industries that backed SOPA, domain holders with sites associated to "commercial activity" will no longer be able to protect their private information with WHOIS protection services.
(emphasis mine)
Quote:
"No WHOIS privacy provider wants their service to be used to conceal illegal activity, and the vast majority of domain owners are not criminals. Using a WHOIS privacy service is no more suspicious than having an unlisted phone number.

You are getting a lot of spams due perhaps to the fact that when you bought your domain name, you did not subscribe to the whois privacy protection which is an addon service provided by almost all domain name registrar. Godaddy for instance charges more or less $7 a year for a whois privacy which is more expensive that namecheap which charges less than $3 for its whois domain privacy protection.

I think you need to hide or protect somehow this by your own. Because now you have that problem and only you will have to solve that.
