Opposed to variable pricing

Dear Sirs,


I am against the proposed registry agreements for the operation of each of
the .BIZ, .INFO and .ORG registries, posted 27 June 2006, for the following

1. As a small business owner I have made a considerable investment in
developing the domain names I own,

I am against the fact that the pricing system for domain name renewals does
not follow any rules and is completely in the hands of a couple of
institutions that control the domain name system.

2. It is only by accident that I heard about this announcement. To my
opinion it is not acceptable that announcements like these are not easily
accessible by the public.

3. Obviously there is not a public record of the comments, considerations,
facts or other basis for the change.

You cannot gain meaningful input to policy decisions whilst denying us
access to facts, figures, evidence underlying the proposed policy change.

4. Until the full record of the facts, evidence, considerations and
discussion is made public this public comment process is and will continue
to be a sham.


I would therefore urge ICANN to make the record and evidence for these
dramatic changes available for public consideration or at least make the
repository for the record plainly available by a link in the body of the
page where public comment is invited.


Again, I am firmly opposed to significant policy changes that do not receive
a full and fair airing in public and against changes that are not brought to
the public's attention in a manner decidedly calculated to evoke the
greatest degree of public input.


Kind regards,


Hubert A. Hers
