To ICANN board of directors.
As a member of the general public, a .COM domain name registrant and a small
business internet service provider, I would like to comment on your proposed
I believe the contract for the .COM registry should not be tied to the legal
ICANN has with Verisign and any term changes made to the .COM registry contract
should not be considered a "bargaining chip". The legal battles with Verisign
involve other parties that will be affected by these proposed changes in the
contract, such as myself and the general public. In essence the proposal to
fees takes money from my pocket to settle ICANN's legal problems. I find this
Overall the terms of the .COM registry contract should take into account the
interests of the general public and internet users. In my opinion increasing
is not necessary and not in the best interests of the general public. These
terms should not be associated with the ICANN vs Verisign legal battle and this
proposal should not be accepted by the board if they are considering the
their overall constituents.
Thank you for your time.
