    ICANN Promised Not to Run a TLD - It Lied Again
    by Anonymous on Friday September 23 2005, @10:28AM (#16236)
    ICANN Promised Not to Run a TLD - It Lied Again

    Before ICANN was formed, and during the formation
    the claim was made that ICANN would not run a
    TLD. As with all things ICANN, and all things
    that Vinton Cerf touches, it was all a lie.
    Look at what Vinton Cerf and Bernie Ebbers did
    at Worldcom, as another reference point.

    ICANN of course now runs the .NET TLD and they
    have set themselves up to profit, despite lieing
    about being a non-profit. Non-profit companies
    are not allowed by U.S. law to engage in the
    same businesses as for-profit companies. If that
    was not the law, companies would claim to be
    non-profit, as ICANN does, and then dominate
    markets with an unfair advantage, as ICANN does.

    When will the U.S. Government step in to shut
    the ICANN sham down ?

    "Section 7.3(a) Pricing. From 1 July 2005 through 31 December 2006, the price to ICANN-accredited registrars for new and renewal domain name registrations and for transferring a domain name registration from one ICANN-accredited registrar to another, shall not exceed a total fee of US$4.25, which fee consists of (A) a Registry Operator service fee (“Service Fee”) equal to US$3.50, and (B) an ICANN fee equal to US$0.75. On 1 January 2007, the controls on Registry Operator’s pricing set forth in this Section 7.3(a) shall be eliminated. Commencing on 1 January 2007, the Service Fee charged during a calendar year for each annual increment of a new and renewal domain name registration and for transferring a domain name registration from one ICANN-accredited registrar to another, shall not exceed the highest Service Fee charged during the preceding calendar year multiplied by 1.10."
