Possible Internet Changes
The internet has opened up the global market tremendously. It has made communication a breeze and has aided in the development of thousands, if not millions of businesses. There is an issue at hand that may create some major changes in the interent. The issue is internet goverance. The internet has been overseen by ICAAN since 1988. This is a multinational group, but the U.S. representatives dominate it. Lately, there have been various proposals concerning how to oversee the internet. One of which is that it states that all governments should have "an equal role and responsibility for Internet governance and for ensuring the stability, security and continuity of the Internet..." On paper this sounds great, but how will it impact the global market in practice. I believe that the internet needs to remain as is. In its current state, it has proven to be an extremely effective tool for conducting business all around the world. By making changes to it, there will be both positive and negative consequences;I fear the negative will outweigh the positive.
