Who — If Anyone — Should Control The Internet?

Beckstrom: "You're going to see more different languages in domain names, I would predict. And so it's going to look more like the world and less like one individual country. And I think that's a good thing," he said.


Kieren McCarthy: But ICANN's increasingly international focus may not be enough to satisfy governments that resent the U.S. role in Internet governance.

Those complaints are likely to come to a head this December, when the International Telecommunication Union — a U.N. agency — holds a meeting in Dubai to rewrite legally binding global treaties in such a way as to radically change how the Internet would be governed worldwide.

"It's extremely serious. It's fundamental," McCarthy says. "It's to the point where everyone knows that changes will be made at this U.N. meeting in December in Dubai, and now the effort is to limit the impact that those changes will have."

The move is led by China, Russia and India, all of which in one form or another favor putting the Internet under the supervision of the United Nations.

Re: Who — If Anyone — Should Control The Internet?

Nothing is preventing nations from creating alternative roots.

Period.

Iran is about to launch one. good luck with that one...

China was very close to forcing one in the mid 90's.
but linkages to HK and TW forced it, if not the WTO/WIPO issues...


ICANN may be a failure in some ways....( in many ways actually...) but the US Government Dept of Commerce agreement with ICANN / IANA which is really based on a
DARPA agreement with the Dept of Defence actually..is never going to be passed to the

UN or the ITU.

The Russians/Chinese/Indians / EU can stomp all they want.
Just their citizens demands for SMS to be global enabled makes this a non starter.
