Therefore, internet governance is not just about how it runs today. It is how it should be run so that any country does not use it to attack others, or damage its economy, or use it to itself become the pre-eminent economic force on the internet. And let us not forget that url’s and domains are virtual real estates that are being bought and sold --- they are of economic value. If internet is a vital global resource, its governance is legitimately the concern of the global community.
