    Russia, U.S. Tussle Over Internet Control at U.N. Conference
    December 10, 2012 – As a conference on international communications enters its final week Monday, the issue of whether the current system of Internet governance needs revamping remains unresolved, as blocs led by the United States and Russia dig in to mutually incompatible positions.

    You're quoting someone's blog as proof this is going to happen?

    Really?

    You DO know that what is on a person's blog is pretty much just their opinion, right?

    "The only opportunity for free speech"? Does that mean cost effective speech? I agree that we should keep government snoopers and red tape out of the internet but certainly all Americans are taught that America is the freest Country on the planet thanks to the Constitution. You can write a letter to the editor, curse Obama on the street corner, burn the Flag, call a talk show and a dozen other things that you can't do in some other countries. How free do you want it?
