Obama Administration Handed Over The Internet to a Private Corporation

Internet Freedom For Americans Could Soon Go Away as Control of The Internet is Handed Over to a Private Corporation

Mohit Kumar | Hacker News 

Since the foundation of the Internet, a contract has been handed over to the United States Commerce Department under which the department had given authority to regulate the Internet.

After 47 years, this contract ended at midnight EDT i.e. Saturday, October 1st, 2016.

If you think that the United States owns the Internet, then you’re wrong. It doesn’t.

Founded in 1998, non-profit organization ICANN (The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) oversees the Internet’s “address book” (or root zone) — the process of assigning domain names and the underlying IP addresses to keep the Internet running smoothly.

But according to the contract, ICANN and its IANA department (the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority) was set to work under the supervision of National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA), an agency of the U.S. Department of Commerce.

That contract is ending today, and the US Commerce Department is scheduled to hand over its role to ICANN, which will now become an autonomous body, accountable to an international multi-stakeholder community which includes members from the technical community, businesses, telecommunications experts, civil society and governments.

    Can I just say what a relief to find someone who actually knows what theyre talking about on the internet. You definitely know how to bring an issue to light and make it important. More people need to read this and understand this side of the story. I cant believe youre not more popular because you definitely have the gift.

    When I originally commented I clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get four emails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove me from that service? Thanks!

    1/2/2017 In my view, americanintelligencereport.com does a excellent job of dealing with topics of this sort. Even if frequently deliberately contentious, the material posted is in the main well researched and challenging.

    The subsequent time I read a blog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as much as this one. I mean, I do know it was my option to read, but I truly thought youd have one thing interesting to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about one thing that you could possibly repair should you werent too busy in search of attention.
