MarkMonitor generally supports Verisign's continued operation of the .COM 
Registry. However, we urge ICANN to require Verisign to comply with all New 
gTLD Requirements including Thick Whois and support for the URS (Uniform Rapid 
Suspension). Given that untold hours have been spent by the community over the 
past four years in developing the New gTLD Program, we believe that requiring 
all Registries to comply with New gTLD Requirements is the only equitable 
solution. We also believe that, while not perfect, the requirements set forth 
by the New gTLD Program provide better protections than what is currently 
required today by gTLD Registries.
In addition, the proposed price increases seem exorbitant, in light of the fact 
that no new substantive offerings are being added to the contract. Although, 
should Verisign comply with the New gTLD Requirements, MarkMonitor would be 
supportive of the price increases.
Finally, MarkMonitor also requests that Verisign consider the release of 
single-character registrations, allocated in a manner similar to the process 
used by .INFO.
