China To Control Global Internet By October 1, 2016

China looks likely to control the internet worldwide by 1 October, 2016


China are to take full control of the Internet as the United States prepares to relinquish it’s control on October 1, 2016. 

In November, 2014, Li Yuxiao, research fellow at the Chinese Academy of Cyberspace, warned “Now is the time for China to realize its responsibilities. If the United States is willing to give up its running of the internet sphere, the question comes as to who will take the baton and how it would be run?

We have to first set our goal in cyberspace, and then think about the strategy to take, before moving on to refining our laws,” he continued.

Well, that time is now here. reports:

Li’s comments were in response to news, also in 2014, that the United States would relinquish its remaining federal government control of the internet by ending its contract between the Commerce Department and the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), which is scheduled for Oct. 1.

As the United States plans to relinquish control of ICANN—and with this, fully end U.S. oversight of the internet—the Chinese regime has moved to fill the void.

Over the last two years, it has drafted an authoritarian set of laws that governs every facet of the internet, and it has formed or gained control over domestic and international bodies to press these new laws for the internet through the United Nations, through domestic enforcement including on foreign companies inside China, and through organizations formed to interface directly with major technology companies abroad.

ICANN is the body that governs domain name registration and ensures users are not redirected to a site they don’t intend to visit.
