The Internet Association Letter on Protecting Global Internet Freedom

Excerpt: We at The Internet Association believe that maintaining a free and innovative Internet is critical to the platform’s continued growth and development and will ultimately lead to global economic success, technological innovation, and democratic discourse. We commend Congress for unanimously passing resolutions in support of the Internet’s current bottom-up, decentralized, and multi-stakeholder model and urge the U.S. government to continue its unified stance…The Internet’s open and decentralized governance framework should not be challenged by some states’ top-down assertion of control over aspects of Internet governance and their desire to use the ITU as a mechanism for asserting such control. The Internet Association stands ready to work with Congress and the Executive Branch to ensure that the current, successful Internet governance framework is respected and preserved.
