Can you say Puppet?
To: Settlement-comments@xxxxxxxxx Subject: Can you say Puppet? From: Daniel Stager Date: Wed, 30 Nov 2005 Rally call should be NO taxation without representation. This settlement is ALL wrong in so many ways. 1. WildcardDNS/SiteFinder scheme 2. CLS/Expired domain monopoly 3. Perpetual presumptive renewal clause 4. $200M R&D commitment disappears 5. Traffic data sales 6. Appendix Y disappears 7. ICANN fee increases 8. 7% a year domain price increases How can ICANN justify increased fees to both themselves and Verisign without even a hint of protection or service to the consumers? I have one question. If this settlement is approved (Bad) does ICANN officially become a subsidiary of Verisign?
