To whom it may concern,
I recently found out about the .COM amendment, specifically the pricing 
changes planned for said domains.

As both a customer that owns hundreds of .COM domains, as well as a 
whole-seller I highly disagree and oppose the proposed changes. It will 
unfairly penalize small business owners and those who hold large domain 
portfolios on behalf of their clients, some of which have domains for 
their personal hobbies. Furthermore, I will be forced to drop hundreds 
of domains which are considered "typo" domains, common misspellings of 
domains our clients use as the price increase would not justify owning 
them any longer.

The current service/registration fees are more than enough. How can it 
be that other TLD's have cheaper fees and manage fine, why would the 
most recognized TLD in the world need a price increase in their fees 
after all of these years.

Verisign is merely your manager of the .COM Registry – it has no 
business dictating the price.

ICANN is supposed to govern the domain name system in the public 
interest, not for profit.
