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.
