In their searches, the terms copyright, Internet, ICANN and cybersecurity were all searched for.Mueller notes that “Regarding ICANN, the leaked cables are from the foreign policy branches rather than the Commerce Department, so most of the juicy ICANN-related stuff is not in there. Searching for ‘ICANN’ produces 39 documents, all but two of them unclassified. Some of the most interesting date back to the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS) and the debate it sparked over US control of the root.”To read Mueller’s analysis of the cables regarding ICANN as well as copyright, internet and cybersecurity, see:
