Re: Don't Let There Be a .Com Monopoly

Recently, Reps. Bob Inglis, Spencer Bachus, Rich Boucher and I sent a letter calling for a Judiciary subcommittee hearing on the Commerce Department's pending review of a proposed agreement between VeriSign and ICANN. Valid concerns have been raised that the ".com" domain name registry could become an unregulated monopoly.  In addition, the proposal guarantees VeriSign the opportunity to unilaterally increase prices in most years of the new contract.

It just makes sense that the Committee that has oversight of this issue take a close look. This matter will directly affect Internet operation and cost.
