I am sending this email to comment on the proposed new iCANN pricing

As a longtime user and low-level developer of web application alongside the
three businesses I've started and own, I feel I have enough history to
appreciate the depth and breadth of what iCANN's proposal means across a
few different web user profiles.

I just can't see how one organization, who's attempt to some degree is
financially hijacking the system literally everyone has become so deeply
embedded and dependent on is just wrong. When a company has virtually no
competition, and has been an active participant-(of course alongside many
organizations who stand to benefit from possible changes to the web) in
promoting deeper and deeper involvement from everyone, and has free reign
to take those rare conditions and run against the good to almost every
American-(global citizen?), who can read and hold a phone, something has to
change. There are reasons that tight rules and conditions are in place for
other organizations that are in a similar situation where free-market
conditions can come into play forcing competitors to provide the best
solution at the best price-not any price. Companies like electric utility
companies (which I know a little about), communication companies, etc...
When similar kinds of controls are non-existent, and the competitive market
forces to keep pricing in check are absent, can anyone blame a U.S. company
for taking what they want, any way they want? By today's standards?

Thank you,
