This renewal proposal does not include the 10% maximum year over year
increase in registration fees found in previous registry agreements. This
limit should remain in effect. Inflation of the US dollar has been
substantially less than 10% for 38 years and it is extremely unlikely for
it to increase above 10% in any circumstance other than economic collapse.
It would therefore be impossible to classify a price increase >10% as
anything other than pure rent-seeking.

ICANN is ultimately accountable to the Internet community and has a moral
obligation to place that community above domain registrars. ICANN is
therefore duty-bound to oppose rent-seeking by the domain registrars. This
is absolutely critical to protect the creativity and innovation that the
Internet contributes to our modern society.
