Leaked Documents Show the U.N.'s Internet Power Grab...

First, China is proposing "to give countries authority over the information and communication infrastructure within their state" and require that online companies "operating in their territory" use the Internet "in a rational way"- in short, to legitimize full government control.

Second, several proposals would give the U.N. power to regulate online content for the first time, under the guise of protecting against computer malware or spam.

Third, Russia and some Arab countries are proposing to be able to inspect private communications such as email.

Fourth, Iran and Russia are proposing new rules to measure Internet traffic along national borders and bill the originator of the traffic, as with international phone calls - essentially creating national toll booths for data.

Fifth, there is a proposal that would give the U.N. control over the Internet's Domain Name System, replacing ICANN which operates under a contract from the U.S. Commerce Department.

I have no doubt whatsoever that one day the U.N will end up running the DNS, because on paper they are the ideal organisation to do it - however; we'll soon be wishing for the return of icann

Wishful thinking possibly but since the successful fight against SOPA i would like to believe it is great this now made it to reddit (should make home page) and will get the attention it deserves. Since that SOPA thing there's the group that started www.internetdefenseleague.org and they began this 'semi' automatic quick response plan to cases like this from the many people that signed up.

Re: Leaked Documents Show the U.N.'s Internet Power Grab...

to move the DNS root to UN control would require 2 things.

US Dept of Commerce retraction of its agreement with ICANN.
Legislation passed by Congress and signed by the President.

A resolution by the UN is not going to do it, nor an act by the WIPO or the WTO.


firewalls it is....

That is actually delusional. All it would take is a consensus of most other leading nations to turn around and give iCANN and the US a big Fuck You!

No reason for this to happen other than interminable frustration.

So not really a problem then?
