    New gTLDs Trojan Horse in ICANN's proposals for new gTLDs
    posted by tbyfield on Wednesday November 12 2008, @09:40PM

    GeorgeK writes "ICANN has posted draft contracts for new gTLDs. These contracts contain a Trojan horse that could radically alter pricing of domains in existing gTLDs like .com.

Existing gTLD contracts have an "equal treatment" clause, though, that permits registry operators to copy terms that are accepted by ICANN in other gTLDs. Thus, existing gTLDs like .com which do have price controls would be able to have those price controls removed if the draft contracts for new gTLDs are adopted as-is.
