To Whom it May Concern:

This letter is to state my opposition to Proposed Amendment 3 as there are clear issues with its implementation:

To wit, there are clear potential financial gains to be had by raising the registration fee on .com domains. And yet, the global DNS registration system should
be run primarily as a public concern. The two are incompatible.

The only entities that stand to benefit from the proposed arrangement are Verisign itself—at the expense of the public.

While price hikes such as this may not substantially impact the larger business concerns that buy in bulk, it will greatly negatively affect the millions of small, independent businesses and developers that rely on the system as it currently stands
to make their livelihood.

At worst, this could prove yet another point of pressure that convinces a small business to make their online presence exclusively within the walled garden of social media, eschewing the web itself.

The web, and global DNS, were envisioned to be run for the public good, and they SHOULD be run for the public good. Deals such as this constitute a clear conflict—not to mention an abnegation of the public trust—and are an abdication of that mandate; short-sighted profit chasing at the expense of the greater good.

Please do not adopt this proposal.
