||Verisign's Proposed Contract
http://taxmama.com Free weekly Tax News You Can Actually Understand
| In reading ICANN's summary of their reasons for their
proposed contract, I find some disturbing inaccuracies - ICANN says they have received
no complaints about NSI's activities, so they see no reason to go forward, in good
This is very untrue. My readers and I have contact both NSI and ICANN about
NSI's illegal billing practices. NSI, now Verisign, continues to invoice people for
domains, long after those domains have been moved. http://www.taxmama.com/Articles/NSI.htm
- ICANN has simply patted us on the head, and said, we don't deal with these things.
to the provisions of the new contract -
read Section D carefully - especially Provisions 4-7.
That will take you to the heart of the changes - before that, the
is really benign...it's really about Verisign giving up
.org and .net, in exchange
for something it already has - the
right to renew it's contract through 2007.
to the chase - Provision #5 seems to say that it will let Verisign
firewall between it's own registry and the registrar
operations. In other words,
it will have access to all the data of
all registrars subcontracting with them...(but,
naturally, continue to honor the existing scenario. Uh huh?)
I particularly like Provision #6. - "VeriSign would agree to
permit any ICANN-accredited
registry operator (including .org)
access to its global zone resolution and distribution
terms to be determined."
Did you read the last 5 words? Does
that make you feel secure?
