Want Something...

...make your own? Nope, just demand that someone else give it to you for free, I guess:

Breaking America's grip on the net

After troubled negotiations in Geneva, the US may be forced to relinquish control of the internet to a coalition of governments
But will this move mean, as the US ambassador David Gross argued, that "even on technical details, the industry will have to follow government-set policies, UN-set policies"?

No, according to Nitin Desai, the UN's special adviser on internet governance. "There is clearly an acceptance here that governments are not concerned with the technical and operational management of the internet. Standards are set by the users."

Hendon is also adamant: "The really important point is that the EU doesn't want to see this change as bringing new government control over the internet. Governments will only be involved where they need to be and only on issues setting the top-level framework."
And if you believe that, I'd love to see you a certain bridge in NYC.

What a load. I'm sure that here is not even the possibility that some freaking country like Iran or China will ever use this governing body to cause problems. As it stands today, China can restrict the information accessed and posted by those in China.

You don't think that there's a possibility that this new governing body could ever gain such control over the entire network? Maybe not, but are we really will to subjugate ourselves to the will of other contries?

Well, some are.

Are you?
