[Comments-com-amendment-3-03jan20] .COM price increases

To whom it may concern,

I am writing you today to protest the proposed price increase to .COM
domains. As a company, Verisign already enjoys some of the highest profit
margins in the domain industry. (Or any industry, for that matter.)  The
company maintains a monopoly on the .COM registry, and incredulously, is
proposing a price increase as its costs of operation are actually going
*down!* (This contention is bolstered by the many other registrars who
maintain that, given an opportunity, they can run the .COM registry at much
lower costs.)

As if to add insult to injury, this is a company that is supposed to be
operating in the public interest. All parties would agree, with the
possible exception of Verisign themselves, that the burden of a .COM price
increase at this time on individuals and small business would most
decidedly NOT be in their best interests.  For all the reasons noted above,
I urge that the proposed amendment be rejected.
