Hi folks, Most people didn't read the entire proposed agreement, so they've not delved into some critical changes. I just submitted my detailed comments, see: https://freespeech.com/2020/02/14/c...ed-amendment-3-to-the-com-registry-agreement/ and I would draw your attention to point #11, namely the proposed changes in section 2.7(b) of the RAA agreement. Take a look at the blue text on page 50, which adds new text allowing Verisign to cancel/transfer domains: That's all brand new language that doesn't exist currently, and for good reason, because "any government" means governments like Russia, Iran, Turkey, North Korea, etc. would be allowed to make orders that Verisign would obey! Or, a banana republic could simply pass a law saying all dictionary word, 2-letter, 3-letter and other valuable dot-coms now belong to the treasury of that banana republic, transferring billions of dollars of assets to that country. Obviously, this is not desirable, but that's the effect of these sloppy contracts. Folks need to wake up and comment on more than just price. See the entire comment I submitted for all the other points I found (and there are probably other important points made by others that are buried in the 8,000+ comments which ICANN staff will not document in their summary, just like they didn't point out that in the .ORG comments that I mentioned private equity ).
