Icann had previously been operating under the auspices of the American government, which had control of the net thanks to its initial role in developing the underlying technologies used for connecting computers together.
But the fresh focus will give other countries a more prominent role in determining what takes place online, and even the way in which it happens – opening the door for a virtual United Nations, where many officials gather to discuss potential changes to the internet.
Allowing foreign governments…like, say, China, Iran, North Korea et al…set internet policy that can be enforced against US internet users.
What could possibly go wrong???
