United Nations control of the internet “is the likely result if the U.S. gives up internet stewardship as planned at midnight on Sept. 30,”writes our columnist Gordon Crovitz. That’s because, once the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (Icann) no longer operates as a contractor for the U.S. government, the outfit “would seek to be overseen by another governmental group so as to keep its antitrust exemption. Authoritarian regimes have already proposed Icann become part of the U.N. to make it easier for them to censor the internet globally,” adds Mr. Crovitz.
