It appears that ICANN and Verisign are treating their relationship as a
monopoly, or a public utility, without any checks and balances when making
new agreements on how the prices for domains are structured. ICANN must
address all matters of payment to a third and an independent party that has
an obligation to protect consumers, such as FTC or DOJ. ICANN and Verisign
should never enter into any private agreements due to limitations laid out
in the Section 1 of the Sherman Act in the United States. If wholesale
prices for domains cannot be set by market forces, they must be set by a
public utility - there is no third option.
