Domain fees to rise...

  • From: Rodney Joffe

It appears that the government has received permission to raise the
domain fees back to $50. 

http://www.news.com/News/Item/0,4,26004,00.html

Interestingly, the article continues to indicate that the additional fee
is, in fact, a tax, and the NSF's *agent*, Network Solutions, will
collect it on the Government's behalf.

Must be irritating for a foreign entity to be forced to pay a US tax for
an international resource. Wasn't there something like this that created
an uproar in Boston Harbor?
