    Alert: Big Win On Internet Regulation!


    Thankfully, the UN negotiations on Internet regulation collapsed yesterday in Dubai when the U.S. and Canada announced that they would refuse to support or sign any treaty that gave the UN's International Telecommunications Union (ITU) the power to regulate the Internet.

    They specifically rejected the efforts of Vladimir Putin's Russia to control the Internet through international treaty. Russia had sought to give each country the power to manage the Internet within their own countries and Putin's ally Toure, the head of the ITU, sought to charge Google and other content sites for any videos used internationally. The goal in these charges was to make it prohibitively expensive for Russians to download video from foreign providers.
