Abstract

Herein, we discuss how trade policies, agreements, bans and strategies could affect Internet openness, Internet governance, and Internet freedom in the U.S. EU and Canada. We do not discuss telecommunications or e-commerce issues. We note that despite the shared goal of promoting internet openness and stability, the 3 trade behemoths do not consistently cooperate. Without such cooperation, we may see a more fragmented web, more digital protectionism, and fewer e-opportunities.

Keywords: trade, internet, digital, privacy, cyber-security, internet freedom, human rights
