    My two cents: International bodies are not good at this sort of thing. Who cares which country these computers happen to sit in? They're in the US at the moment, so why go to the hassle of moving them? Perhaps as the internet evolves control will move (most likely to india/china), who knows.

    And as for Europeans and Americans throwing insults across the Atlantic without making the effort to understand each other..... It's getting a little boring. Surely there's another forum for that??

    profit who. i know no profit. anti terrorism. ya Fing right.as long as you are not a terrorist they ont bother you. they probobly wont even notice you unless you go and start trading secret plans to take out DC or something. then they have a guy who isnt a terorist but is passing around secret plans to wipe out dc. now explain why you are passing around a secret pla to take out dc. so see. you gotta belive in the chickens. ecause the chickens will guide you. especialy the robot chicken, because he is the king. but stay away from the space burritos. they will drain you brains and fill you with farts.


    see. i just made a post about absolutly nothing and trailed off with retarded crap about chickens and space burritos. you know why? because this whole freakin thread is just getting dumber by the minuet with anti amarican sentiments and anti-anti american sentimints in which i willingly participated in. eventualy we get a flame war. so lets stop while we a still in a position to hold dignaty.

    but seriosly though, those space burritos will kill ya.

    There are a few root servers that are not in the US so does it not mean the US doesnt have full control, thats all this artical seems to mention, Anyway it was an English man who invented the Web (although with out DARPA it would not exist) so dont arguee the Internet/Web is an American invention because as said its done by alot of nations working together.

    like said before, if it aint broke, dont fix it.

    AND IT AINT BROKE, SO GET YOUR HANDS OFF IT!
    No one is talking about physically moving the servers anywhere. This is NOT a government entity. It does not run of US governmental money!
    Thursday's declaration means Commerce would keep that control, regardless of whether and when those conditions are met.
    The Commerce staying in control of ICANN is the new policy. The plan was always to turn over control.
    Once again as Giro said the Internet is a world effort, and it stupid to claim some special ownership of it. How far do you want to go back? Without Michael Faraday we wouldn't be able to have computers, servers, etc... He was English, so does that mean the Internet belongs to the English?
