Stop UN regulation of the Internet

Under the treaty:

· The U.N. would distribute and assign all e names

· Each country would be notified of the IP addresses of each email user within its borders (allowing China and Russia to track down dissidents)

· The UN could regulate Internet content

· Every nation would have the right to censor websites that originate within its borders

· And every country could charge a surcharge for access to any websites that originate beyond its borders.

Vinton Cerf, one of the founders of the Internet and currently vice president of Google, has correctly warned that the “open Internet has never been at higher risk than it is now.” He notes that “if all of us don’t pay attention to what’s going on, users worldwide will be at risk of losing the open and free Internet that has brought so much to so many.”

Meet Hamadoun Toure, the new wannabe boss of the Internet. Educated at the Leningrad Institute and at Moscow Technical University — both during the ’80s — he is now the head of the International Telecommunications Union (ITU) of the United Nations. And he’s Vladimir Putin’s choice to run the Internet.

Currently the ITU is a little-known arm of the U.N. in charge of long-distance phone calls and satellite orbits. But the negotiations now under way would vest it with enormous powers over the Internet. 

And yet, there is almost no coverage of this outrageous proposal and possible treaty in the media in the United States. The Wall Street Journal has warned that the proposed treaty could “use the International Telecommunications Regulations to take control of the Internet.”

If we don’t rally to protect the Internet and stop this outrageous invasion of our liberties, we may lose it forever.
