President Obama is reportedly determined to transfer control of ICANN - which distributes IP addresses - from the US to a multilateral body under a plan drawn up by Commerce Secretary and subprime billionaire Penny Pritzker. This is despite the Republican House voting to defund the transfer in 2014.

Should Trump take up the issue? Is it better to have global control of the internet or will it lead to dictators in Russia and China (who have been demanding his change for years) being helped crack down on dissidents? Imagine this organisation voting to close down pro democracy web sites?
