ICANN Verisign Settlement comments
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1
7% fixed, and without reference to inflationary figures or CPI is unreasonable. Rather than 7%, can the maximum increase be refered to Consumer Price Index, or whatever the equivalent metric exists in the US for inflation.
The capacity to remove Verisign, should it fail to perform, is essential. ICANN must retain the capacity to remove Verisign as registry operator. My business, on behalf of one of its customers, has experienced difficulties with Verisign over the past few years - having the capacity to remove them is essential to ensure good corporate behaviour. ICANN must retain the ability to rebid for TLD registrar over .com. Perhaps some performance review agreement can be made, with the possibility of taking input from non-Verisign non-ICANN entities who may have had issue with Registrar performance.
Thanks for the oportunity for comment, and I wish ICANN well in its efforts to negotiate this settlement.
