To Whom It May Concern,

I am writting to you in total disapproval of the decision between ICANN and 
Verisign. Clearly you are scraching each other's back and as far as I can see 
this is a monoploy behind the doors in which the public is going to have to pay 
for. This is unacceptable and looks unlawful. Below are a list of suggestions 
and expectation that I have as a Internet consumer.

The proposed .com renewal contract should be reworked to reflect the Internet 
communityâs concerns. The gTLD namespaces are a public trust; no registry 
operator, including VeriSign, should be given indefinite control over them, 
especially one as important as .com. This is a monopoly and I will make sure 
people understand this.VeriSignâs unilateral price increases that are not 
cost-based and not subject to approval should not be allowed. All ICANN fees 
should continue to be approved by the Internet community. Internet users should 
not have to pay an unreasonable âICANN Taxâ or pay more for domain names 
just to increase VeriSignâs profits. With the recent investigations into 
coroprate issues I don't feel that this instills trust in the public.

I hope you hear this and don't just blow it off. This is your consumer speaking.
