"Bush administration opposes U.N. Net control"

Read the full CNET article.:

"In a sign that traditionally obscure discussions about Internet control have taken on new prominence, President Bush broached the topic in a meeting this week with European Commission President Jos�Barroso.

"The high-level meeting, which took place at the White House on Tuesday, comes as the United States is facing a revolt among third-world nations that are demanding reduced American influence over key aspects of the Internet. The European Commission recently threw its support behind one of the reform proposals that's scheduled to be discussed at a United Nations summit in November. "

I expect Internet governance to be a major issue at the upcoming meeting of the World Summit on the Information Society.
