Here's a novel idea.
How about not using the lawsuit (which they would lose)as a negotiation tool in a new contract. They should HAVE to compete for renewal. It's the only fair way. If they wish to have a role in the domain aftermarket how about they compete with everyone else instead of using this contract to weasel their way into BILIIONS of free money every year. This contract will be the direct result of the next .com bust if signed. Literally.. You will be wiping out an entire industry with the stroke of a pen. Rewarding Verisign for it's past wrong doings. In addition to that you have this comment "Without that issue to get angry about, much of the fire against the agreement will be quenched. VeriSign has clearly refused to budge on it being given lifetime control of the dotcom registry, but ICANN is willing to let this go because it believes the importance of dotcoms will diminish as it releases new top-level domains and the Internet becomes more search-engine led." http://www.theregister.co.uk/2006/01/30/icann_verisign_new_contract/ So the solution is undervaluing what people have spent YEARS in building? Releasing new extension to each and every .dumbass who applies? Who are you people anyway? __________________________________________________ Do You Yahoo!? Tired of spam? Yahoo!
