Approve the Settlement!
Please do the right thing and approve the ICANN-VeriSign settlement. It is good for the ICANN community, the entire high tech industry, and for VeriSign interests as well. It is good for the ICANN community because it proves you can manage your own house, an important competency to show these days with many eyes focused on future Internet governance. It is good for the entire high tech industry, as both domain name sellers and businesses won't ever engage in unilaterally introducing services that either cause disruptions or cause controversies. Lastly, it is good for VeriSign interests. Unless they want further lawsuits where they'll be forced to simply roll the dice in court to try to hold onto some measure of authority over the largest and most free exchange of information and ideas available on this planet. Please approve this deal as soon as possible! Consumers are paying too much, and innovation in the high tech sector is being held back. Let's move on! Chad Goote Grand Rapids, MI
