Future of Internet Freedom at Risk Over Potential American Surrender of ICANN
In March, the United States Department of Commerce released a statement, which indicated the organization would begin to relinquish its longstanding role as safe keeper of internet freedom. If the U.S. Commerce Department’s National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) surrenders this governance, Internet freedom will be at risk on a global scale.
During the December 2012 World Conference on International Telecommunications (WCIT) convened by the International Telecommunications Union (ITU), an agency of the United Nations (UN), America stated clearly that proposals, which would tax those who send data, limit free speech, and implement territorial borders around the Internet, is unacceptable. These ideas proposed at the WCIT would make it harder to communicate across borders, develop pro-consumer network management, and limit entrepreneurs' ability to manage data storage.
