Submission + - United Nations Argue for Control over Internet (bbc.co.uk)

sl4shd0rk writes: At present, several non-profit US bodies oversee the Internet's specification as well as DNS. The Unitied Nations however, has expressed an interest in relinquishing control of the Internet from the United States. The UN's Dr Toure says any change to governance of the internet must be supported by all countries. The USA has refused, arguing that "existing multi-stakeholder institutions, incorporating industry and civil society" will continue to oversee the "health and growth of the interenet and all it's benefits". According to The Russia Today news service, the push is backed not only by Russia, but China, Brazil and India as well.
