The Future Of Internet Governance

The Future Of Internet Governance

Ongoing fallout from NSA surveillance programs changes the tone of dialogue between U.S. and countries like Brazil at the annual Internet Governance Forum.

Revelations about the National Security Agency's worldwide surveillance activities have led some world leaders to question the wisdom of a U.S.-dominated World Wide Web. Leading the pack is Brazil, whose President Dilma Rousseff is already considering measures to reconfigure the way Brazilians access the Web, by circumventing U.S.-controlled servers. The debate comes to a head this week at the U.N.'s annual Internet Governance Forum. Kojo discusses possible changes in store for Internet users around the world.
