ICANN Board Members:
Over the course of the past few months, I have been analyzing the United
Nation's interest in the Internet. I think it is amusing that some think
the Internet would be better off if it was in the hands of the UN. Perhaps
that will happen, who knows?
However, as we all know, the UN is really good at spending money. If you
think ICANN's fees are high, just wait for the UN to take hold. In my
opinion, fees would double or triple as the UN created endless committees to
create, comply with, and re-evaluate more red tape. Money would be taken
out of businesses for ostensibly noble pursuits, but would actually go to
diplomatic conferences of no use. WSIS had to cost an enormous amount of
money. Where do you think they will get that money? Again, in my opinion,
they will get it from you - registrars, registries, and Internet users.
That is what looms for the future of the Internet unless ICANN can get its
act together. Finally, a key component of ICANN's re-organizational effort
must be solving its disputes with companies such as Verisign.
Thank you very much; best wishes for continued success.
