[nib] India avoids UN push for Internet control
Despite a number of pieces in its media trailing the move, India's government representative did not revert back to its CIRP plan for a new United Nations body to oversee the Internet. Discussions over "enhanced cooperation" at a WSIS meeting in Geneva revolved around either setting up a working group to look at the issue, or creating a map of current agreements forged for different countries and groups to deal with Internet-specific issues. The man identified as being behind the claim that India would push for UN control, Parminder Singh, later infuriated civil society (who he claims to represent) by arguing that big Internet decisions should be left in the hands of government officials.
