    Critics of the global Internet idea say certain nations like China want to take away ICANN's duties and place them under governmental auspices, along with increased control over security and content, placing freedom of press and individual freedom of expression at serious risk.

    France, China, Syria, Egypt, Vietnam and South Africa are the countries mentioned in the article wanting U.N. involvement.

    If you want to limit the users in your country, have at it. Leave the rest of the world the hell alone!

    I assume Bin Laden's camp of followers, along with the Liberal Socialists and commies, want to tap into the internet money flows to monitize their ADjenda's. Seems logical they'd want the most easily corrupted of organizations to oversee their fair share of the pie. Making money from the enabling of Anti-American forces via Internet control makes perfect sense if you want a real WWW. (Wild Wild West)

    This is what happens when you allow an organisation to be controlled by big corporate interests - the users feel the need for government protection.

    Make ICANN more answerable to USERS, and the problem will go away.

    In case you don't care to get your news from a source right of hitler, you can try this recent article for a little more grounded look at the issue.

    http://news.com.com/The+U.N.+thinks+...3-5643972.html

    One of the issues that will continue to exist until international treaties are created and enforced is spam and fraud. Right now in North Korea and China these two things can go unabated, with no fear of prosecution. While we have our share in the USA, we also put our share in jail.

    But I still prefer my solution over having the UN involved, simply kick china and north korea off the internet.
