First off, this settlement makes the Internet stronger and I and millions of users around the world will be better off not to mention that the price of $6 for a domain name is a steal. Have you been to the gas pumps lately? Secondly, the ICANN board should step up and show the world that they can operate and maintain their own matters. The UN would love to see this fall apart. Kofi Anan and the rest of them would love to have their hands on this. It would give them an oppourtunity to raise billions more to create new agencies, control content, and throw lavish conferences all on the backs of small business and Internet users. Finally, get this settled here and now, and keep the UN out of it.
