UN's Latest Move on Net Governance Triggers Alarm Bells

August 2, 2004
ICANNFocus.org has a disturbing report on the latest steps the United Nations is taking in the area of Internet governance.

The UN's World Summit on Information Society (WSIS) recently completed a meeting (PrepCom-1) in Hammamet, Tunisia in preparation for the second phase of the WSIS process. Following the meeting, the Secretariat of WSIS' Working Group on Internet Governance (WGIG) issued a statement discussing the organization's plans and goals.

ICANNFocus.org says that means the UN-appointed group "will have, in essence, free reign to involve themselves in and make recommendations regarding virtually every aspect of the internet, including content." FR Reprint.
