    Eight large US-based non-profits, several of them household names, have put their names to a letter demanding that Public Interest Registry should not be allowed to increase its .org registry fees beyond 10% a year.

    Combined, these eight outfits have revenue of roughly $2.6 billion per year.

    PIR’s fees are currently under $10 per domain per year. It has roughly 10.6 million names under management.
