To the Board of Directors of ICANN,
I am writing to note my strong objection to the terms and conditions of the
proposed contracts for the .info/.biz/.org TLD.
In particular the elimination of price caps, the introduction of tiered pricing
and the strengthening of presumptive renewal are terms that are not in the best
interest of registrants and will hinder the growth and development of online
I strongly urge to you to reject these contracts and re-start the negotiation
process taking into account the upcoming recommendations of your own policy
committee (GNSO) and to advocate strongly for the interests of the broad
internet community to produce a balanced and fair contract.
Edwin de Jong
