I have several .COM domains and am directly affected by ICANN and the decisions made by the domain companies in this area.
After doing some research, I came to the knowledge that there was a recent agreement made between Verisign and ICANN that has a big impact on the industry.
Specifically how Verisign can now increase the prices dramatically year over year, how Verisign can operate as their own registrar, and possibly act as a reseller through another registrar.
This is directly affecting small businesses because it will cause a significant more friction and make it harder for your main market to continue to innovate. I believe it is really important that ICANN involve more of the market and community on these types of decisions.
