Now that ICANN has filed their reply to the|
Verisign lawsuit, Verisign needs to move forward
with New Services that people want. ICANN has
no say, and Joe Sims makes it clear that ICANN
does not stand in Verisign's way.
Verisign can increase shareholder value by putting
the ICANN era behind them. The market place will
rally around the Verisign run .COM and .NET TLDs.
People do not want to see .COM or .NET go down
the path that .ORG took, with an out-sourcing
arrangement to a closed circle of religious
zealots, who can not keep their servers running
and who openly admit they are working on such
high-tech experimental systems, they do not even
.COM and .NET owners do not want to be part of
some academic/government/geek experiment. It is
time for Verisign to move to serve the marketplace
of people and companies who understand what
reliable, stable and secure telecommunication
systems can deliver. The .COM and .NET owners
expect the best, not the lowest bidder.
The rapid TLD server update is just one of
many upgrades to the .COM and .NET services
that Verisign can do, without requiring any
approval from ICANN. There are a large number
of other services which can now be delivered.
It is time for Verisign to move forward and
ignore ICANN. The .COM and .NET owners need
to focus on next generation Internet services
and customers, not religious zealots from the
last century, parading around the world acting
