Part of me wants to scream hell no, but then there is another part of me that really wants to see some control taken away from the large ISPs...

I think a UN approach is better than giving one single goverment or corporation the control though because in some countries that is the case.

How about all governments take their paws off the Internet entirely. Yes there are people on the Internet who say mean things about your regime. Yes there is CP. Yes, a record company might be losing 0.0000000000000001% of their profits to piracy. Now deal w/it and move on.

Don't make any quick decisions! That's why we have competition, for all I care, I'd make my own ISP, founded by the donations and payments of the people of the state/country/whatever!

Neither of those 4 countries need to be controlling their internet anyways..... This is just a terrible idea in my opinion. Keep the competition, keep the struggle for internet neutrality in China, and keep the internet open for all. The next thing we need is government's controlling the traffic coming to and from their countries and doing god knows what with the packets that are coming back to you. I sense government cyber warfare >_>

But is this any worse than ISPs saying how much and how you can use the Internet or what Internet services you can run at home? A set of ground rules might not be a bad idea, but China has no business even sitting in on the discussion due to how they run their Internet policies.

I just think a UN approach might not be a bad thing. Honestly no real way to know. I just forsee that more individual governments will start stepping in a taking control of the Internet in their countries...if that happens I am sure more people will want a UN approach were at least there are more parties involved.

I am not too worried about the US...the large corporations would not stand for it, but I am sure other countries might not have a choice.

Ground rules, like net neutrality, are fine. Regulation is not. I'm arguing for internet freedom on the same basis as free trade. I agree with what you say. But the government should keep its grubby paws out of the internet. There is a reason why it is so successful in the first place..... I don't want them to hurt it with something stupid in the same regards as the Smoot-Hawley Tariff did in the 30's, which in my opinion is the true cause of the Great Depression instead of a big recession.

This reminds me of what happens to radio. Free and open, closed and destroyed later on.
