This new development came in today ...
Bush administration annexes internet

An extraordinary statement by the US government has sent shockwaves around the internet world and thrown the future of the network into doubt.

In a worrying U-turn, the US Department of Commerce (DoC) has made it clear it intends to retain control of the internet's root servers indefinitely. It was due to relinquish that control in September 2006, when its contract with overseeing body ICANN ended.

So far the US has done a "passable" job of governing the internet. I would still prefer it to be in the hands of an international body.

Just as long as they don't try anything stupid, does it really matter?
