IANA Transition Must Move Forward, Says Google Senior VP and General Counsel

“Preserving a Free and Open Internet,” is the title of a post published today by Kent Walker, Google’s SVP and General Counsel. He writes in part: “Why the IANA Transition Must Move Forward ... Although this is a change in how one technical function of the Internet is governed, it will give innovators and users a greater role in managing the global Internet. And that’s a very good thing. The Internet has been built by—and has thrived because of—the companies, civil society activists, technologists, and selfless users around the world who recognized the Internet’s power to transform communities and economies. If we want the Internet to have this life-changing impact on everyone in the world, then we need to make sure that the right people are in a position to drive its future growth. This proposal does just that.”
