India proposes UN "takeover" of Internet

http://j.mp/w19BYF  (.nxt)

    "The Indian government has formally proposed a government takeover
     of the Internet at the United Nations General Assembly in New
     York.  In a statement sent yesterday, India argued for the
     creation of a new body to be called the United Nations Committee
     for Internet-Related Policies (CIRP) which would develop Internet
     policies, oversee all Internet standards bodies and policy
     organizations, negotiate Internet-related treaties, and act as an
     arbitrator in Internet-related disputes."

Yep, "fantasy" is the accurate term.
