I would like to voice my concern over the propsed renewal of the Dot Com 
contract with Verisign.

Firstly, if my memory serves me correct the .com contract was awarded as part 
of a settelement to a lawsuit.
I don't believe that a contract of this importance should have ever been used 
as any sort of leverage in a settlement.
The .com contract is not ICANN's "possession" to leverage this way. The 
multiple stake-holders involved in 
ICANN were robbed when this settlement was allowed.

I believe ICANN should follow it's charter to allow for competition and open 
the contract up for competitive bidding.
It should also not allow any operator the virtual monopolization of the widely 
most used TLD to be rewarded with 
perpetual and unneccessary price increases as part of their contract.

Thank you
Adam Strong
