Whose influence will win out?

Advertisement

ICANN is a California-based nonprofit, that manages a centralized list of domain names & IP addresses.

They are the ones who make sure there is only one brasschecktv.com, for instance.

They are under an agreement with by the US Department of Commerce. That agreement ends in September 2015. What will happen then?

ICANN will become a non-state entity. The U.S. influence will be less & other countries will, possibly, gain influence on how domain names are handed out.

Could there be censorship, or attempts to use the internet for political leverage?

Only time will tell, but hopefully ICANN will remain a neutral organization.
