Subject: Internet Control

Ladies and Gentlemen,

It is critical that the U.S. and ICANN maintain control of the Internet. We the U.S. created the Internet and it is the number one force in commerce and business. I have been in the Telecommunications / Data Communications / Internet Industry for 36 years. I have consulted in many countries around the world. Believe me you do not want the control given to the U.N. and various countries. The freedom, the efficiency and the organization will be lost. The Internet will become hopelessly politicized. We the U.S. will also be giving up yet another technological and business advantage. We need to constantly improve here in the U.S. no doubt, however the bureaucracy, corruption and inefficiency I've seen in countries around the world is appalling. Don't let the Internet go.......it's an important and precious resource.
Thanks for your time.

All the Best,

Mike Grigg
