the price point gsi set was $100/two-years, and later in litigation
the portion earmarked to go a public agency was removed, resulting in
the $75/two-year price point.
of the things to fear, that hadn't happened then, such as the
determination that domains are marks (wipo i), and the ancillary
exploits, keeping the cost at the green-stamp price-point of zero
dollars and zero cents seems a pretty odd thing to fear.
yes, we f*cked by failing to keep the allocation mechanism profit neutral.
