The United Nations is considering a new Internet tax targeting the largest Web content providers, including Google, Facebook, Apple, and Netflix, that could cripple their ability to reach users in developing nations.

The UN and the rest of the world needs to be reminded that the Internet is ours and they are free to play on it. This kind of scheme can be dealt with fairly easily. Any country that adopts this tax should be kicked of the net entire and invited to create their own Internet that they may tax and regulate to their hearts content.
If they come to their senses, they can be allowed back on to the US created Internet. Until that time, they can go pound sand.
