dear sirs,
We are a kolkatta based web hosting and domain registration provider . Very 
recently we came to know about the Verisign-ICAAN settlement and it deeply 
pains us to hear about such an event . We have been in this business for the 
past 5 years and over the years we have our business grow with every 
development on the internet . It is obvious that much of the increase of any 
business comes with a better competitive pricing of the product / service and 
also the business flourishes as long as there is a healthy competition . 
In the past 2 years especially we have seen a tremendous rise in awareness 
among our customers about the web and we are quite certain that much of this 
comes from the regularly decreasing prices of domains as well as the 
availablity of newer domain extensions. Yet , .COM is still the first choice 
for 90% of the customers and we are almost certain a meteoric rise like 7% per 
year will curb down much of our business along with several of our competitors 
We strongly object to ICAAN's signing of any agreement that enables such a 
tremendous rise in the cost of the most premier domain name extension along 
with the handing over of propreitary rights of .COM to a single provider , 
namely Verisign.
