"A key focus for VeriSign in 2012 is getting their agreement with ICANN and the U.S. Department of Commerce renewed. VeriSign last renewed its deal with ICANN to operate the .com registry in 2006. VeriSign has administered the .com domain name space on behalf of ICANN since 2001.

Bidzos explained that there's a new ICANN policy that became effective January 1, 2012, in which their public comment periods have changed from a single 30-day comment period to 2 comment periods of 21 days each.
