This question was ealier posted on the NARALO list:

The .net registry contract states:

Section 7.2  Fees to be Paid to ICANN
a)  Registry-Level Transaction Fee. Commencing on 1 July 2005, Registry 
Operator shall pay ICANN a Registry-Level Transaction Fee in an amount equal to 
US$0.75 for each annual increment of an initial or renewal domain name 
registration and for transferring a domain name registration from one 
ICANN-accredited registrar to another during the calendar quarter to which the 
Registry-Level Transaction Fee pertains. ICANN intends to apply this fee to 
purposes including: (a) a special restricted fund for developing country 
Internet communities to enable further participation in the ICANN mission by 
developing country stakeholders, (b) a special restricted fund to enhance and 
facilitate the security and stability of the DNS, and (c) general operating 
funds to support ICANN's mission to ensure the stable and secure operation of 
the DNS.

Could you please advise:

(1)  The total amount of fees obtained by way of this portion of the .net 
(2)  The amount allocated to the special restricted fund for developing country 
communities (and by what means it will be dispersed)
(3)  The amount allocated to the security and stability restricted fund (and 
how such funds are spent)
(4)  The amount allocated to the general operating fund.
