No, US Net Neutrality Will NOT Allow UN Control of the Internet

Daniel Sepulveda has a very long title that basically says he’s a US Ambassador over all things technical at the UN. His message to the American public this week is simple and to the point: if enforcement of net neutrality becomes the law of the land, it will not be an open door for the UN to slide in and seize control of America’s Internet access.

As we see it, the only strong arguments remaining against FCC Title II rules are: ongoing legal uncertainty due to the almost certain legal challenge that the rules will face from the cable companies; and concerns that the FCC will be tempted to give itself too much power by not removing (forebearing) enough clauses from America's outdated communications legislation.
