Internet Governance Organizations Form New Group

Responding to a dizzying array of issues that threaten to break the Internet, from privacy to tax dodging to cybercrime, a group of the world's leading governance organizations say greater user involvement, not top-down control, is needed. Three organizations -- Brazil's Internet Steering Committee, Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) and the World Economic Forum (WEF) -- said they were setting up a new group to find solutions to Internet governance issues, instead of waiting for governments to agree.
