Phil Corwin of ICA Quoted In The Story on Verisign & .Com Contract

“It is highly unlikely that the contract would be put out for competitive re-bid, as this would open up the possibility of a non-U.S. company receiving the registry contract and could well send Verisign hurtling toward bankruptcy as it has sold off other parts of its business over the past few years and is now focused almost exclusively on registry operations,” Philip Corwin, counsel for the Internet Commerce Association, wrote in a blog post on Monday. His group represents domain-name investors, website developers, and others. “Most likely are constraints on Verisign’s pricing flexibility, which could range from reducing the 7 percent limit to something less, reducing the number of times that prices can be raised, or even requiring Verisign to justify any future proposed increases to the DOJ before implementing them.”
