Dear Sir/Madam:

I am writing to oppose Proposed Amendment 3. Despite

there clearly being potential financial gains to be had by raising the

registration fee on .com domains, the global DNS registration system should

be run primarily as a public concern. 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 likely won't mean much to the

larger business concerns that buy in bulk, it will impact the millions of

small, independent businesses and developers that rely on the system as is

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 in the Facebook walled garden and eschew 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 are an

abdication of that mandate; short sighted profit chasing at the expense of

all else. Please do not adopt this proposal.

Larry Dumka
