France pushed the European Union to propose a new Internet Governance plan. If adopted, the EU's proposal - which calls for a government-run body to control the Internet - would mean the end of ICANN and business-led Internet policies, and hand over the future of the Internet to countries such as Iran, Syria and China.
I think we all find this a comforting thought huh?
Just think about what China can do now when they can force Google and MS to play by their rules or be banned from China.
What will china do when they make the rules for the whole internet?
but other comfortable signs at what the UN really wants to do here follow
# Business groups were expelled at the insistence of the Chinese delegation from cyber security meetings.
# Business groups were expelled at the insistence of the Egyptian delegation from a drafting group on the "enabling environment."
# Business groups were expelled at the insistence of the Iranian delegation from a drafting group on privacy and consumer protection.
So... Anyone else wondering how much the EU and France are on the side of freedom and democracy?
