Liberty Council Action Alert!
The Obama administration is planning to surrender key functions of the United States’ oversight of the Internet to members of the international community. This “control group” may be comprised of enemies of our nation, enemies of liberty, and/or radicals who oppose our freedom of speech and freedom of the press. International censorship or a worldwide shutdown of the Internet in a time of crisis will become a real possibility.
Senator Ted Cruz has a bill in the Senate. Representative Sean Duffy has a companion bill in the House of Representatives. The following is the statement of purpose of these bills:
Protecting Internet Freedom Act
This bill prohibits the Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Communications and Information from allowing the National Telecommunications and Information Administration’s responsibility for Internet domain name system functions, including the authoritative root zone file and the performance of the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority functions, to cease unless a federal statute enacted after enactment of this bill expressly grants the Assistant Secretary such authority.
The Assistant Secretary must certify to Congress that the U.S. government has: (1) secured sole ownership of the .gov and .mil top-level domains, and (2) entered into a contract with the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers that provides the U.S. government with exclusive control and use of those domains in perpetuity.
