ShutterstockThe U.S. Congress has ground into a perpetual state of deadlock, producing a legislative branch that has been one of the mostunproductive in history. But there are still a few things Congresspeople from both parties can agree on: the governments of the world really shouldn’t be regulating the Internet.

That sentiment was expressed in a December resolution that called for a key UN body, the International Telecommunications Union (ITU) to halt any move to assert authority over the Internet. And it was reinforced, when Rep. Greg Walden (R-OR) proposed legislation that would make it official US policy to promote “Internet freedom.”
