The world?s leading nations have moved a step further to agreeing the basic rules for Internet use and electronic commerce.
Delegates at the International Information Industry Conference in Berlin, proposed a set of broad recommendations about online taxes, privacy and security.
The conference revealed that through support from the Organisation of Economic Co-operation and Development, the World Trade Organisation, plus a number of leading companies, most industrialised nations have agreed that ecommerce should be free of special taxes, while personal information should be protected from misuse.
Little progress has been made however on how to deal with online pornography and the securing of digital data.
In a separate announcement, a final draft of a proposal that would create a global, non-profit company to manage top-level domain names was made public yesterday.
The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) will be based in Los Angeles, but in accordance to the request from the US government earlier this year, will represent the interests of the global Internet community.
It is hoped that ICANN will be operational by 30 September when the US government ends its contract with Network Solutions which currently manages the domain name system.
