I’m not even American (I’m English) but I find this a little worrying. The US represents the same liberal freedom-protective tradition that the UK shares. To be blunt that is not a tradition that many countries around the globe have much time for. To be blunter still, I do not want countries like China, Russia (to name but two) to have any input as to how the net operates.
I just do not understand why the US should relinquish control over the net and it troubles me. Am I right to have such concerns or am I just being ignorant of how the net works and what this move means for that working?
