As someone who owns a few web domains, I am concerned by the recent
proposal to change the .com administration contract with Verisign.
I understand that freezing the prices of .com domains indefinitely is
not reasonable, since inflation is a concern in the long term. However,
the proposed terms do not simply index wholesale domain prices to
inflation or anything along those lines. To me, it looks like a possibly
corrupt move to let Verisign raise rent on internet users in exchange
for Verisign shelling out an extra $20 million to ICANN.
Please don't give a government-granted monopoly more freedom to raise
prices without adequate oversight and reasonable cause.
