Net Neutrality, Facebook and WhatsApp

On 1 October 2016, the U.S., under the Net Neutrality doctrine, will relinquish FCC control of the international Internet (abolish ICANN).  This has concerned many cyber experts regarding the governance of the Internet.  This legal issue in Hamburg, Germany could be a precursor to interpretation of privacy laws, international law and future litigation against cyber companies.  Wapack Labs will continue to monitor this serious matter.
