adnonsense writes "ICANN, the governing body that oversees global top-level domain names (gTLDs), is proposing scrapping price caps on the
.org, .info, and .biz top-level domains. That means that the price of registering and renewing these domain names can be decided at will by the registry. For example PIR, who operate the .org TLD, could decide that slashdot.org is suddenly worth a million dollars, and unless Slashdot stumps up, no more slashdot.org. Worse, those sneaky guys and gals at ICANN have given the world until just Monday to submit comments on the proposed changes. WebmasterWorld is carrying a detailed discussion."
