Subject: Comments on DNS Transition, Docket No. 060519136*6136*01

To the U.S. Department of Commerce:

The Internet's value is created by the participation and cooperation
of people all over the world. The Internet is global, not national.
Therefore no single Government should have a pre-eminent role in
Internet governance.

As the US reviews its contract with ICANN, it should work
cooperatively with all stakeholders to complete the transition to a
Domain Name System independent of US governmental control.

Respectfully submitted,

Nik Wakelin
