DUBAI, United Arab Emirates - Thursday, December 13th 2012 [ME NewsWire]

(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Statement from the Internet Society CEO and President, Lynn St. Amour:

At the conclusion of today's plenary, the Internet Society is concerned about the direction that the ITRs are taking with regards to the Internet.

Amendments were apparently made to the text but were not published prior to agreement. This is clearly a disappointing development and we hope that tomorrow brings a ... Read more »
