As reported by The Register, there has been no study of the potential
economic impact of the proposed removal of price restrictions on .org
"But, despite calls stretching back a decade for ICANN to hire a team of
economists to dig into issues like exactly like this, the industry body
still doesn't have a single economist among its nearly 400 staff.
As a result, there is no economic analysis by ICANN of a proposal that
would fundamentally change the economics of the domain market, an
absence that has left many alternatively confused and angry. The change
will lead to instability, the industry warns and could end up destroying
the very competition that was recently introduced."
I am opposed to these changes, until a full economic study has been done.
