Globalising governance - The Guardian - Leader
The Guardian has a leader asking who should run the internet, and notes that there needs to be strong rule over the issuing of domain names. It says the role needs to be changed and the recent loosening of the reins by the Department of Commerce was a step in the right direction. The leader concludes "It is easy to say that the body should report to the whole net community but making that a reality is likely to be a formidable task. It would be nice, but idealistic, to think the UN could ensure this happens, as some countries are urging. Icann now has an opportunity. If it can devise a non-governmental institution for international governance it might create a model that could be applied elsewhere, to tackle other problems posed by globalisation."
