Dear Sir or Madam
              ICANN and Verisign contract amendments
I write to convey my utter dismay on your decision to amend ICANN's contract with Verisign without public consultation. The Internet, as we have all witnessed, has, on one hand, brought freedom of expression in a manner and at a scale that is unprecedented in human history. On the other hand,  It has made possible an equally astounding feat: an open and truly globalised market. Yet, your actions now put the very foundation of the Internet in jeopardy.
Your deal with Verisign has potential not only to drive the domain registration fees higher, thus putting it out of reach for people like me, but, to add insult to the injury, will also make the Internet a less democratic and competitive place. Are we to witness yet again the interest of the multitude to be sacrificed to benefit the few? I wish it were not so. I wish for a friendlier and more open world for our youth. Would you then not stay your action?

Kind regards,
Irfan Tufail
