A member of the Pirate Party and site The Pirate Bay, has called for a boycott of ICANN and called for help in forming a parallel internet that is not controlled by the US State Dept.
The move has been called in relation to access to information such as the wikileaks cablegate and the Pirate Bay Torrent index.
“It all started with a tweet on 28 November: “Hello all ISPs of the world. We’re going to add a new competing root-server since we’re tired of ICANN. Please contact me to help.””
