Hello ICANN,

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.
