Necesitamos detenerlos. Sí el internet es libre y es una organización sin fines de lucro ¿Por qué aceptar esto?

This amendment is corrupt and unnecessary, made to benefit only some ICANN corporates and Verisign

Despite there clearly being potential financial gains to be had by raising the registration fee on .com domains, the global DNS registration system should be run primarily as a public concern. The only entities that stand to benefit from the proposed arrangement are verisign itself, at the expense
of the public. While price hikes such as this likely won't mean much to the larger business concerns that buy in bulk, it will impact the millions of small, independent businesses and developers that rely on the system as is to make their livelihood. At worst, this could prove yet another point of pressure that convinces a small business to make their online presence exclusively in the Facebook walled garden and eschew the web itself. The web, and global DNS, were envisioned to be run for the public good, and they SHOULD be run for the public good. Deals such as this are an
abdication of that mandate; short sighted profit chasing at the expense of all else. Please do not adopt this proposal.

Higher .com domain fees will hurt small business and the internet as a whole. I have several .com domains for my fledgling business ventures so this will hurt me personally

In Africa, we're already struggling to pay the current .com fee. Increase in the price is discriminative in nature to those that can't afford.

ICANN is allowing price increases for no apparent reason to benefit only the Verisign shareholder.
