How can I protest against this? Any petitions open yet? Any involved representatives I can contact, as a UK citizen? I've had just about enough of this foolishness.
has the un done anything productive in a while? i'm seriously asking, i haven't been following news

Not the U.N itself that is doing this - Some of the member countries (Including Russia and China, for obvious reasons) want to push it through the U.N. It doesn't make resolutions itself, countries put forward motions and have to gain support from others for it to pass.
[QUOTE=Murkrow;34805332]Hey I've got an idea Let's give complete control of the internet to EU since they seem to be the only (inter)governmental body that has any goddamn clue how internet should be handled[/QUOTE] Or just let nobody control the internet. Its not the governments to control.
[QUOTE=Boba_Fett;34805237]I strongly despise the UN. They do some good things, sure, but the concept of sovereignty is completely alien to them. The internet deserves to be completely neutral. Nobody should have control over it.[/QUOTE] Oh hey look, you didn't read the article. And neither did a lot of you blaming the UN for this.
This is going to start a small war eventually.

[QUOTE=Governor Goblin;34805503]Oh hey look, you didn't read the article. And neither did a lot of you blaming the UN for this.[/QUOTE] Exactly - The UN does not make any resolutions, it just facilitates the ability for other countries to put forward resolutions to be passed. The power lies completely with each of the member states.

I like how the persons that are supposed to represent [B]us[/B] are still pushing treaties and legislations that are not in the line of the public opinion.

Spark some knowledge about this shit in public already goddamn.
[QUOTE=Darth_GW7;34805600][B]RUSSIA AND CHINA[/B][/QUOTE] What I was trying to say is still true, I doubt the majority of the Russian population would support this kind of movement.
[QUOTE=Darth_GW7;34805600][B]RUSSIA AND CHINA[/B][/QUOTE] Not just those two if the article is correct, as it mentions "Dozens of countries, including Russia and China" pushing for this. I haven't been able to find a list of such backers, but if they have stakes in the ITU then they're also UN member states. I'm going to try and find more information on this, the article cites no sources. Edit: Found some countries named as supporters. China, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Russia, India, Brazil. Makes it sound similar to a [url=http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2003/nov/17/20031117-113002-7678r/]2003 movement for similar regulation[/url]. It doesn't seem yet that the UK is among them, which brings me some relief.
When will they just fuck off with the whole "internet censorship" thing? Fucking Christ, they've lost countless times. Why even bother trying?
its like fishing
Truly good government is not afraid of information freedom, because it just cannot hurt them in any way. If the government wants to have full control over information, that government should be replaced.
you sitting there, hoping to get a catch once you do, its get lose and you keep trying to you get it
How about a goddamn "FUCK NO"?
America: FUCK YEAH!
One does not simply control the internet But really, When are people going to give up on this. It's never going to happen, It's like trying to kill TPB
we must move all the current web to ocean based servers now. nobody can own the ocean!
[QUOTE=TheFilmSlacker;34805722]When will they just fuck off with the whole "internet censorship" thing? Fucking Christ, they've lost countless times. Why even bother trying?[/QUOTE] They think the more they try, the better chance they have of succeeding. Unfortunately they're right. Some people wanted to put in a casino near me and year after year they were voted down. Eventually (I think it was a couple years ago) they won. The music and movie industries are at the root of the issue, I think. They don't want to continue to "lose billions of dollars and hundreds of thousands of jobs to piracy." Censoring the internet for law-abiding citizens is obviously the answer to that.
It makes me laugh that people actually think they can control the internet.
[QUOTE=Glorbo;34805867]It makes me laugh that people actually think they can control the internet.[/QUOTE] It kind of scares me. If they end up getting control over it, what else are they going to do?
These fucks are really pushing for this now, starts with ACTA, SOPA AND PIPA in the US, similar try here in Ireland but they've back down, wanting to block thepiratebay in the UK (that's only the start). FUCK OFF.
[QUOTE=Governor Goblin;34805527] I didn't know Ron Paul was a prominent anti ITU politician in Russia.[/QUOTE] Hey jackass, he's opposed to nato and the UN. No alliances = no dumb wars in syria/we don't have to listen to what corrupt politicians in Russia have to say = another win for the freedom of the internet
[QUOTE=Sumap;34805284]Yeah, I don't think the world should take internet advice from these guys.[/QUOTE] Or Christmerica... Or at least not with the direction it's headed with the current candidates...
