Freedom in cyberspace isn’t a settled issue 

Media Outlet: 


Control of the Internet is a topic of discussion at the U.N.’s International Telecommunications Union (ITU) conference in Dubai this week. Autocracies like China claim to lead a sizable group of countries that wants to transfer authority over IP addresses and related functions from ICANN to the ITU. This could lead “netizens” to think more about how they can make the existing system work for them, said David Post, an expert in cyber law at Temple. “There will now be a whole new horde of people who will be thinking about ICANN who hadn’t thought about it before, and that’s a very good thing.”
