Internet Governance Forum: Is It More Than Talk? by Monika Ermert
This article in Intellectual Property Watch examines the IGF and reports on its current status noting several of the coalitions formed at the first IGF presented short progress reports at the meeting this week in Geneva. The article notes “the new UN Secretary General has yet to make his first comments on Internet governance issues.” The article outlines some of the groups involved and the issues they will be highlighting such as the A2K@IGF Coalition. Towards the end ICANN gets a mention, quoting Riaz Tayob who noted that “the issues of root servers, domain name servers and Internet Protocol are among the most important issues in Internet governance,” and that “if they are absent from the agenda, the core issues are absent.” It was noted that ICANN and the ITU should be invited to give an update at every session.
