06/09/2003 Archived Entry: "U.S. extends hegemony over the Internet"

NOT LONG AGO, THOMAS FRIEDMAN WROTE A NEW YORK TIMES COLUMN, A Theory of Everything, to explain why people around the world increasingly resent the influence of the United States.

Now Michael Geist has written U.S. Extends Its Hegemony Over the Internet to explain in similar terms why other countries are upset at having their own copyright and Net-access laws overridden by U.S. laws and policies. It is indeed a global village, and the U.S. isn't always the most tactful "mayor."
