> Who gave the USA or any government the right to right to run the internet.

The Internet was mainly (not all) designed by the US - which is why they demand world control of it.

In the same way that the UK designed the telephone and now has world control of that.

...Hang on a minute - not to the phone - I think I got that wrong.

You are right - why should the US have bloody control of the Internet?

Incidently the US did not design the World Wide Web - which we are using now on this forum.

> $$$$ can't stand dealing with the common bloke as an equal. Does WIPO?

No - that is why eighty percent of UDRP goes to the Prosecution, or Complainant as WIPO like to call them.

Which explains why WIPO get chosen by most of them.

> Does ICANN operate as an defacto Internet government, fair and open to scrutiny?

You are taking the micky now - you know they should do - but don't.

> Who(is) hiding what?

They are hiding one of the biggest scams on the planet.

The Corporate theft of common words, under the lie that it is THEIR Intellectual Property.

Big Business is stealing our language.

I would tell you the other big scam - but then I will have to shoot you ;-)
