Alert: Big Win on Internet Regulation


Thankfully, the United Nations negotiations on Internet regulation collapsed yesterday in Dubai when the U.S. and Canada announced they would refuse to support or sign any treaty that gave the U.N.’s International Telecommunications Union (ITU) the power to regulate the Internet.

They specifically rejected the efforts of Vladimir Putin’s Russia to control the Internet through international treaty. Russia had sought to give each country the power to manage the Internet within their own countries and Putin’s ally Toure, the head of the ITU, sought to charge Google and other content sites for any videos used internationally. The goal in these charges was to make it prohibitively expensive for Russians to download video from foreign providers.

Russia had obtained support from a strong majority of world governments because each found it in their interest to suppress the Internet at home. Our hope was that the U.S. would block the treaty and it did!

The death knell of Internet regulation is particularly welcome to us at Dickmorris.com. We have collected 100,000 petition signatures against the proposed treaty, which we first outed in our book, “Here Come the Black Helicopters: UN Global Governance and the Loss of Freedom.” Our book was the first to explain the threat of the treaty, which had previously been negotiated in secret behind closed doors.

Coupled with the Senate rejection of the Treaty on the Disabled, these two new developments show success in rolling back the power grab of the U.N.

Thank you for your help in blocking these treaties!
