Proposed Settlement Agreements
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.
