    The article is extremely biased, which can be seen from the first paragraph (the mentioning of China, Russia and Putin). It is 99% propaganda and 1% information. :thumbd:

    Yes, I tend to agree. It's a bit right-wing utilitarian FUD if you ask me. o_O

    The twisted use of the word 'foreign' in such pieces never ceases to amuse me. But hey - Langley, Virginia :D

    '...Modernization and reform can be constructive, but not if the end result is a new global bureaucracy that departs from the multi-stakeholder model.
    ...a partial list of proposals that could be codified into international law next December at a conference in Dubai is chilling:
    • Establish for the first time ITU dominion over important functions of multi-stakeholder Internet governance entities such as the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, the nonprofit entity that coordinates the .com and .org Web addresses of the world...
    '

    Heh, having a former multi-stakeholder model representative NCSC/DHS top-dog at the ICANN and the multi-stakeholder model organization US Department of Commerce having their own little root-zone file there, are probably prime examples of the global multi-stakeholder model, favoured in the article? :p
