U.N. control of Web rejected

GENEVA — The United States, backed by the European Union, Japan and Canada, has turned back a bid by developing nations to place the Internet under the control of the United Nations or its member governments.
But governments, the private sector and others will be asked to establish a mechanism under U.N. auspices to study the governance of the Internet and make recommendations by 2005.
The move came in preparatory talks for the World Summit on the Information Society, opening Wednesday in Geneva. More than 200 delegates from more than 100 countries attended the talks.
The draft declaration to be issued at the end of the conference Friday also includes strong references to freedom of the press and freedom of information online, despite protests by Vietnam and China, which pushed for more restrictions.

Hmmm...I thought the internet was already being "controlled" by Uncle Sam. Maybe I was wrong....

I guess I sorta have to echo UNFLUX on this one.

how can the internet be controlled at all? it's not owned by any 1 person
or entity or country or gov't. that's why i can't believe it. the US just
think they own everything :roll:

Let's put it this way...if at some point it gets controlled, our "underground" buddies will take over and fix that...so what's the point? *lol (Did I just say that?)
