Showdown set on bid to give UN control of Internet

http://j.mp/Tqlx24  (AFP / Raw Story)

   "It is expected to be the mother of all cyber diplomatic battles.  When
    delegates gather in Dubai in December for an obscure UN agency
    meeting, fighting is expected to be intense over proposals to rewrite
    global telecom rules to effectively give the United Nations control
    over the Internet.  Russia, China and other countries back a move to
    place the Internet under the authority of the International
    Telecommunications Union, a UN agency that sets technical standards
    for global phone calls."

In a battle of wits between the UN and the Internet, which would you
bet on?  Hmm?
