Lessig on the UN's attempt to hijack the internet
Lawrence Lessig nails the impetus behind the UN trying to take over the Internet:
The largest cause of this rift is European distrust of the United States. It’s not particularly related to the Internet. The Europeans are eager to stand up to the Americans, and that I think has been produced by the last five years of U.S. foreign policy. It’s not really a cyberlaw problem.Perhaps now that France is burning they will focus on topics more pressing than DNS governance.
