Velcroman1 writes: A U.N. conference that kicked off today in Dubai has sparked fear of Internet censorship in the U.S. — something U.S. Ambassador Terry Kramer said he is doing everything in his power to prevent. “Nothing regarding the Internet do we want subject to U.N. review and regulation,” Kramer told FoxNews.com. Monday marked the first day of an 11-day conference. Kramer, who leads the U.S. delegation at the conference, said that the first day had “gone well” and so far delegates are “still in the early stage, talking about what should be reviewed when.” No specific regulations have been debated yet. “[Proposals] on content review and on pricing the transfer of content, which would essentially tax the Internet we are actively opposing those,” Kramer said.
