To the Board:

My primaryissue with this contract is that the negotiations on the new contract 
were held between Verisign and the ICANN staff only.  Due to the fact that the 
Contract Condition are matters of policy, in that ICANN regulatory policy is 
expressed though contact, it seems inappropriate that these negotiations were 
held in secret without GNSO and other community participation.  

There are three policy Issue that I i discuss in the accompanying document, 
which I believe are policy issues where ICANN staff has inappropriately made 
policy decisions with proper consultation with the GNSO and the community at 

1. The pre-determination of permissible action if Verisign is found to be in 
breach of certain subsections of the contract.

2. The blanket permission for Verisign to use Traffic Data in any manner it 
desires without any discussion of impact analysis of the effect o privacy and 
other rights.

3. The presumption of renewal
