Global Inviolability of the Internet Root Zone (Briefing Paper #1)

Date: 2014

He makes four recommendations:

  1. The internet root zone should be inviolable at any time, wherever it may be located.
  2. The internet root zone may only be modified through existing procedures or new ones that might be introduced in September 2015.
  3. No state should have the jurisdiction to prescribe, adjudicate, or enforce policy over the internet root zone.
  4. The inviolability of the internet root zone should be based on customary law that recognises the consistent practice of no unilateral interference by the US authorities in the content of the internet root zone.
