One month until they regulate the Internet


www.foxnews.com

Better enjoy Facebook while you can.

A U.N.-sponsored conference next month in Dubai will propose new regulations and restrictions for the Internet, which critics say will censor free speech, levy tariffs on e-commerce, and even force companies to clean up their “e-waste” and make gadgets that are better for the environment.

Concerns about the closed-door event have sparked a Wikileaks-style info-leaking site, and led the State Department on Wednesday to file a series of new proposals...

The headline is quite sensational but it's FOX news so what do you expect?

Regardless of the sensational headline this falls right into place with recent events that have been in the news and discussed on ATS.

Here is a bit of information about the meeting:


The conference will be run by the International Telecommunications Union (ITC), a U.N. agency that has typically provided a welcome service by making sure that the Internet works across countries. Many of its guidelines were first instituted in 1988. Most haven’t changed since then.

This may not sound very important but in light of recent events this should be very concerning.

I included links to a couple threads that relate to this issue and also included a link to the official page for the conference that discusses it's "agenda".

People have been saying this for a while though...I guess I will believe it when I see it.

Interesting read though. S/F

I've lost count of the different ways they have tried to get something like this in action.

Well let's see.

China has the Great firewall, Iran blocks many Western sites and monitors their citizen's activities online and Russia kicked it up a notch just yesterday as a matter of fact. The Kremlin's New Internet Surveillance Plan Goes Live Today

I guess the rest of the World are going to have to follow along...

I saw some good things in those proposed regulations.


Some of the proposals that could clearly have consequences address the high cost of mobile roaming, taxation of calls, issues associated with the routing of calls.

$53B in U.S. dollars, is to connect North and South America using a massive telecom pipeline. Another rule would cover cell phone batteries.
“They would like to implement a law that would require all makers of rechargeable batteries to make them 30 percent smaller and more efficient.


Of course there are some other things as well which are not that good.
Big talk about a couple of good things, to hide all the other facts I guess.
Read the article and find out.

It is likely that the "good things" will be highlighted so as to distract the public, and the discussion, from the obviously bad things. It would be nice to have a "Pro's and Con's" list of these things

That title is so sensationalist, it would work for Alex Jones.

If it really is "one month until they regulate the internet", perhaps the Anonymous "Project; Mayhem" has something to do with that?

As anon4m05 mentioned, the "good things" that are mentioned are probably going to be used as a distraction to deflect attention from the sinister motives they have planned. If you have time I urge you to check out the threads I linked in my OP since they may help shed light on the greater situation as a whole.

Peace.

Yes it is very sensational, but there is some merit behind the sensationalism if you look at the bigger picture. Even though I don't agree with the title of the article there is a global agenda to regulate and restrict the internet in various ways as Slayer69 also mentioned a few examples.

This is also happening in the US, Canada, and the UK at a local level and the fact that they have kicked into high gear on a global scale leaves me very concerned.

If they had done this in the 90's I'd say they would have had a chance at fully regulating the internet.

But now?



I'm but a humble neophyte with how the intrawebz works, but even I don't think it can be regulated now.

But I'll SnF you for the info.

I say we all club together, start now, and back up the internet.

Or print it out so we get a hard copy.

This may be slightly off-topic, but does anyone think that the internet is sentient?

If so, would i allow itself to be regulated?

(I'm going waaaay outside the box now)

I agree with your statement that it would be difficult to regulate the internet on a global scale, especially at this point in it's evolution. I'm not that young, but I'm not that old either and I never really got "online" until 2007 in my mid 20's as I did not have the time or interest to utililize the internet and it's resources until I decided to dive in for various purposes (not porn
)

But as doubtful we may be of them succeeding in their plans they do seem determined so I hope we as a people can unite and stop this before it gets out of hand.

This is not good news for those of us who thrive on this digital medium we call the world wide web. With policies such as this and those being enacted throughout the world as those above have mentioned, the internet will cease to be a realm without boundaries to one with bars and walls.

With this kind of precedent, I fear for a future where my future generations will only be able to seek information, social interactions and entertainment through websites with the .gov domain.

As some have already mentioned, I also hope the development of the “dark” internet, that will remain unregulated and we all essentially become internet pirates…Yarrrgg
