The following is attributed to Gigi B. Sohn, president and CEO of Public Knowledge:
“We believe the United States should promote global Internet freedom. We join members of Congress from both parties and the Obama Administration in opposing international regulation of the Internet. That view was strongly expressed that view this morning at a hearing of the House Subcommittee on Communications and Technology.
"We agree the International Telecommunications Union's (ITU) jurisdiction should not expand to encompass regulation or governance of the Internet, and that some of the proposals to change the International Telecommunications Regulations (ITR) would have dramatically bad effects on the open and decentralized internet we know and love.
“We are also pleased to endorse the bipartisan resolution introduced by House Commerce Subcommittee Chairman Mary Bono Mack (R-CA) which opposes increased government control of the Internet as proposed at the World Conference on International Telecommunications (WCIT) to be held later this year."
