1* How closely have you followed recent news reports about government authority over the Internet?

2* The Internet was invented in the United States, and the U.S. government has maintained some technical control over it ever since. But now the government has announced it is giving up that control to an international agency. Do you favor or oppose the United States giving up its last remaining control over the Internet?

3* Will international control make the Internet better or worse? Or will it have no impact?

4* How likely is it that some country like Russia, China or Iran will try to take over the Internet to censor its content?

5* Which is better – continuing the free-market development of the Internet or more government involvement in the Internet?
