Article expanding on Goldsmith and Wu’s look at China


There’s an interesting (but as far as I can tell, not yet available online or on Westlaw/Lexis) article in Winter 2008 issue of the Journal of International Media & Entertainment Law that uses Goldsmith and Wu’s Who Controls the Internet? as a jumping off point. It discusses China’s effort to get the UN to take over ICANN’s role and an attempt to get “A Proposed Framework of World Norm of Internet” adopted. The authors fear this norm could lead to restrictions on free speech since it only guarantees protections for “true and trusty information.” The article is Richard Winfield & Kristin Mendoza, Does China Hope to Remap the Internet in its Own Image?, 2 J. Int’l Media & Ent. L. 85 (2008).
