WGIG reports on Internet governance.
A report on the governance of the Internet has been submitted by the Working Group on Internet Governance (WGIG), following four meetings and consultations with stakeholders.
The report is said to include recommendations for administration of the root zone files and system; allocation of domain names; IP addressing; interconnection costs; Internet stability, security and cybercrime; spam or junk-emails; data protection and privacy rights; consumer rights; intellectual property rights; meaningful participation in global policy development; capacity-building; freedom of expression; and multilingualism.
Four possible models for global public policy and oversight of the Internet are understood to have been detailed, after WGIG failed to agree on a single model. Points made in the report are said to be due for consideration during the second part of the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS) in Tunis in November. The report is available on the WGIG and WSIS websites at http://www.wgig.org and http://www.itu.int/wsis.
