WASHINGTONThe U.S. government plans to give up control over the body that manages Internet names and addresses, a move that could bring more international cooperation over management of the Web, but will make some U.S. businesses nervous.
The Commerce Department said Friday it plans to relinquish its oversight of the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, or Icann, which manages a number of technical functions that serve as signposts to help computers locate the correct servers and websites.
The action is viewed as a response to increasing international concern about U.S. control over the Internet's structure, particularly in light of the recent disclosures about surveillance by the NSA and other U.S. intelligence agencies.
Other governments have complained that the department's contract with Icann gives the U.S. unique influence over the Web, which it could use for a wide variety of purposes. In response to those concerns, the Obama administration is convening a process to create a new oversight structure for Icann when the current contract runs out in September 2015.
Alan Marcus, senior director of the World Economic Forum, said "the NSA tarnished the U.S. stewardship" of the Web. Mr. Marcus said the U.S. needs to relinquish control over the Web before new leadership can emerge. "There are real issues that get clouded" by U.S. leadership, he said.

Fight back, people! Call or email while you can and demand this stop. This is probably why O got ‘caught’ spying to begin with, and excuse to shut us down.
The U.N. needs it to implement the NWO
“The U.S. government plans to give up control over the body that manages Internet names and addresses, a move that could bring more international cooperation over management of the Web,”
Sure, hand effective control of the Net over to Red China.
GOP this is a huge issue waiting for you to come out opposed to.
Turn back this wrongheaded idea.
GOP stand up. NO.
I am not in disagreement with your idea.
Obama is (not) for a stronger America.
Maybe even let our Dem reps know we can't possibly vote Dem if they don't stop this. Make them think it would help them in 2014 if they oppose this. After all, it's the Internet where even libs & zombies have an interest.
But whatever you say guys, call them,email them, tweet them and put a stop to this damn thing.
Read the book “Extortion”. It will give you a clear view of what is actually happening and why.
Traitorobama continues to wreck this country and hand over its power to the enemy. And the GOP-controlled Congress continues to nothing about Traitorobama.
Problem is FRiend, the ruling class has no party, they agree on the NWO.

The U.S. government plans to give up control over the body that manages Internet names and addresses (snip)..Why?”
So that oppression, suppression and control can be blamed on someone else.
Off to Panama?
The irony of giving up ICANN and domain management - they’re not giving up their right to spy on all the domains, the act that is angering all of our allies.
Haven’t heard anyone on TV say to WHOM (?who) we are giving up control?? Does anyone know who will take over? Seem to recall that the UN wanted control....
