There is at least 1 supporter of the proposed .biz/info/org
contracts....Chuck Gomes of VeriSign!! See:

http://forum.icann.org/lists/biz-tld-agreement/msg00106.html

"Ensuring the continued security and stability of its infrastructure is
critical to the continued growth of the Internet. That is why VeriSign
supports the proposed new registry agreement for .biz. The agreement
closely mirrors the model registry agreements that ICANN has already
used or proposed for .com, .info, .mobi, .net, and .org.

These agreements strike the important balance between protecting
Internet users and providing registry operators with the incentives and
flexibility to continue to invest in the Internet infrastructure.  They
also create a level playing field for all the registries."

He posted similar comments for .info and .org.

It would not surprise me if VeriSign is salivating at the prospect of
these contracts being approved, so that it creates a precedent for
future .com/net renegotiations, and so they can argue .com/net need
those terms too to ensure there is that "level playing field for all
the registries".

If you've not posted a comment yet, the deadline is Monday at 5 pm
(Pacific Time). Spread the word.
