[Comments-com-amendment-3-03jan20] Increasing the cost of .com registration is damaging to the internet

The proposed amendment to ICANN's agreement with Verisign was arranged
unfairly and will be damaging to the internet as a whole.  The .com domains
account for 40% of all internet domains and the effect will be to increase
costs of registering these domains by 70% over the next decade.  No doubt
ICANN executives would like to receive $20 million dollars for quietly
making this agreement, with no strings attached and no accountability.  But
ICANN should have the welfare of the internet in mind and not accept these
bribes from large corporations which stand to benefit enormously from these
changes by enacting huge price increases.
