To whom it may concern,


I am somewhat concerned about the unlimited/unregulated price increase rule
change proposed for the .org domains which can be acted upon by registrar
members which is outlined in the following section:


Pricing for Domain Name Registrations and Registry Services (Section 2.10 of
the .org renewal agreement): In alignment with the base registry agreement,
the price cap provisions in the current .org agreement, which limited the
price of registrations and allowable price increases for registrations, are
removed from the .org renewal agreement.


The .org domain is primarily targeted towards organisations who are for the
larger part non profit in nature and whilst the cost of domain registration
is potentially a small component of overall operational expense cost a
change that allows uncontrolled mark up of renewal and/or registration costs
that could lead to an increased barrier to maintain web presence, increase
domain snipering and squatting. 


I would recommend that such alterations outlined in section 2.10 of the .org
renewal agreement be reviewed and left as they currently reside. There is
potential for prices rapidly grow with this proposed change to the .org
renewal agreement enacted.


Kind Regards,

Jim Woodward.
