02 Oct The US GOVERNMENT HANDS OVER INTERNET CONTROL TO ICANN
According to Discovery News:
“The US government is set to cut the final thread of its oversight of the internet, yielding a largely symbolic but nevertheless significant role over the online address system.
Barring any last-minute glitches, the transition will occur at midnight Friday (0400 GMT Saturday), when the US contract expires for the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, which manages the internet’s so-called “root zone.”*
When the agreement with the US Commerce Department runs out, ICANN will become a self-regulating non-profit international entity managing the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority, the system for online “domains” such as .com.”
Some people fear this may be the start of a One World Government for the internet. Others fear that a privatized internet could create security issues or opportunity for misuse. Still, others are celebrating the transition as a move away from the corrupt government of the United States.
