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,

Tamara Gallant
