To the Board:

My primary issue 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 Contractual Conditions are matters of policy, in that ICANN regulatory 
policy is expressed though contractual conditions, it seems inappropriate that 
these negotiations were held in secret without GNSO and other community 

There are three policy issues that I discuss in the accompanying document, 
which I believe are policy issues where ICANN staff has inappropriately made 
policy decisions without 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 

Thank you
