EU Insists It Won't Regulate the Internet
Story Text:

And i'll bet they were glad to take THAT decision! How on earth could the EU, or anyone regulate the internet effectively? I know (suspect) it's possible but it must be neigh on impossible in reality right? Viviane Reding, EU Information Society Commissioner said "I have no intention to 'regulate the Internet" when she spoke about new broadcasting rules to be put in place later this year.

non-profit yet they ask for $6 per domain and big upfront payments from registrars.
