Google’s Thoughts on UN Internet Control
Google has jumped into the debate over a UN telecom gathering set to review regulations affecting the internet. Google is claiming it is "the wrong place" to make decisions about the future of the web. Google said the December gathering of the UN's International Telecommunications Union comes amid "a growing backlash on internet freedom". US officials and lawmakers, along with a number of internet activists, have expressed concern that proposals from China, Russia and other nations could threaten the open model of the internet by giving the UN agency a greater role.
