I agree with Daniel Castro here, of the Information Technology & Innovation Foundation: "ICANN has a conflict of interest in pursuing the global public interest since its own financial interests are at odds with keeping costs down for Internet users and businesses. Without US oversight, ICANN has the potential to grow into the world's largest unregulated monopoly."
