U.S. Wants to Reduce Tension Over Internet Net Neutrality
April 22, 2014 2:07 PM
The confusion of net neutrality will be an issue that multiple nations try to clearly identify during a two-day meeting later this week.
During the Net Mundial, a two-day meeting among international governments and companies, there will be a spirited debate about who controls the internet.
Last month, the
U.S. Commerce Department confirmed it would give up
Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers
(ICANN), so an international effort will be necessary to help issue Web domains and URLs.
Moving forward, the U.S. government would like to see a “multi-stakeholder” system in which multiple governments, private sector representatives, and universities to step up and lend a hand.
including China and Russia
, want to see the United Nations have more control over ICANN, though exact responsibilities and details will need to be hashed out. It’s a complicated matter because some foreign supporters believe the United States should keep control, however, that’s something the Commerce Department doesn’t want.
There is a growing debate on which governments or parties should “control” the internet, and it seems like no one is able to get along. However, the argument of net neutrality will also be fiercely discussed, as nations continue to develop cyberwarfare weapons capable of attacking critical infrastructure of political rivals and enemies.
Regardless of what happens, all parties hope to find legitimate action items that are achievable – not written fluff that will only complicate things further. The meetings and “outcomes of NETmundial must be concrete and actionable, with clear milestones with a realistic but ambitious timeline,” said Neelie Kroes, European Commission vice president, in an
open letter published last week
During the conference, the National Security Agency’s sophisticated mass surveillance program also will be discussed – former NSA contractor Edward Snowden’s disclosure of surveillance and spying has created distrust among the U.S. and British governments – with representatives keen to discuss privacy efforts.
