    Only 57% ? Dictator Cerf Will Raise the Bar to 60%
    by Anonymous on Monday February 20 2006, @11:00AM (#16619)
    "57 percent of those currently registered"[1]

    Only 57% ? Dictator Cerf Will Raise the Bar to 60%

    Nice try Registrars, but no cigar. The ICANN
    Dictator will just "re-spin" the required bar for
    consensus to be 60%. Reach that level and he
    will raise it to 75%. Get a clue, Cerf is
    laughing all the way to the bank.

    Registrars would be better off putting up their
    own copy of the .COM servers and show that they
    can collectively operate them for pennies per
    year per domain. That of course will not matter
    when Verisign and their ICANN division get
    ready to role out the new technology that makes
    Registrars go away, or become equal to any other
    user.

    Opposition to ICANN-VeriSign Proposal Grows
    Feb 15, 2006
    Posted by CircleID Reporter

    Eight of the world’s largest domain registrars have sent an open letter to ICANN Chairman Vint Cerf, stating their formal opposition to the revised proposition with VeriSign for continued control of the Internet registry.

    The eight signatories, which lay claim to 25 million domain names, or 57 percent of those currently registered, are GoDaddy, Network Solutions, Tucows, Register.com, BulkRegister, Schlund + Partner AG, Melbourne IT and Intercosmos Media Group.
