The internet regulation: to be or not to be?

Internet Forum ahead of G8 summit by Sarkozy.

G8 summit internet regulationsThe world’s most powerful internet and media bosses are gathering in Paris for a two-day meeting hosted by French President Nicolas Sarkozy.

The heads of Google, Facebook and Microsoft are due to attend to discuss the future of the internet. The subject is the internet regulation: to be or not to be?. Issues such as privacy, copyright, competition law and freedom of speech have all been brought  forward because of recent events.

The results will be presented at the end of this week. This is the first time the internet will be discussed by the leaders of the Group of Eight (G8) wealthy nations.

Internet forum participantsThere are two views on the subject of internet neutrality. One, typically held by new firms such as Google and Amazon, prefers non involvement of government regulators. The other view, now more common in Europe, tends to focus on controlling the excesses of the internet.

“The internet is the new frontier, a territory to conquer. But it cannot be a Wild West. It cannot be a lawless place, where people are allowed to pillage artistic works with no limits,” Mr Sarkozy said.
