I am writing to object to the deal ICANN is making with Verisign to allow
increasing of prices on .com TLDs.

It's wrong that one single company is given a total monopoly on selling
something and setting it's price. It's effectively a license to print money
without any competition for free market pricing. There's no option for
domain owners to choose a cheaper alternative because there are none.
Domain owners are held to ransom and have to pay ever increasing prices for
the profit of one company (and ICANN) as there's no alternative.

It seems wrong anyway that you have to continually pay each year to have a
domain name rather then owning it outright after a single payment but to
have no choice but to keep paying endlessly rising prices for it each year
is even worse.
