IGF keeps U.S. control over Internet, says analyst

Creation of the Internet Governance Forum (IGF) will only succeed in keeping control over the Internet in the hands of the U.S., says one Canadian research firm. The IGF is to be set up following an agreement signed recently at the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS) in Tunis, Tunisia. London, Ont.-based Info-Tech Research has described the soon-to-be-created body as a "non-binding" international forum to address concerns relating to the Internet. The research firm said such a forum only delays the imminent "showdown over control of the Internet."
