I see many problems with the proposed settlement between ICANN and Verisign 
and I urge ICANN to stand up for the consumers an internet users it is to be 
protecting . Raising the price of domains adversely impcats  consumer and 
busineses.  The proposed settlement also maintains a status quo of letting 
Verisign 
do as Verisign pleases.  Verisign has pushed to far and this can not continue. 

ICANN should be the authority and control. Verisign should be considered a sub-
contractor and should not be pulling the strings. This is akin to a 
sub-contractor 
lining the pockets of politicians who then pass them no-compete "sweetened" 
contractual work. 

I can not believe that  the only solution a governing body and a private 
business 
can find to setlle a lawsuit is at the expense of the consumer that the 
governing 
body is chartered to protect.  Adding insult to injury, it seems to me that by 
settling 
this suit ICANN is conceding and proving that they have no governing authority 
to 
enforceme any sort of rules in any contracts. . . . at least ones with 
Verisign, which 
in essence opens the door for more contractual infringements that go 
unaccounted 
for. . . please stop this. Do not settle at the expense of those you serve.
