The Internet(cyberspace) consists of a huge network of
specialized computers called routers.
The job of each router is
to know how to move packets from source to destination.
The packet will travel across multiple routers during its flight.
Imagine yourself in a room full of people
from different countries,
and everyone speaks in their own language only.
Now what do we need to do to have effective
communication between all of these?
We have to create a set of standards,
laws and terms that everyone understands and agrees on,
and this makes the Internet a unique thing, it is a system that allows
different computer networks to communicate and
communicate with each other using a set of normative laws
previously agreed upon, without these laws and standards
was not in any way For those networks to communicate with each other.
Now can you imagine with me how wide the Internet?
The Internet is a group of interconnected computer
networks that extend throughout people
throughout the world and depends mainly on
a set of hardware and a set of standards called protocols,
these protocols make the process of communication
between computers in different networks possible
and it also depends on the infrastructure Huge routers
or network access points and computers themselves,
then there are cables, wires or radio waves that
transmit signals between all of these devices.
It is a truly global system, giant cables connect
countries and oceans to each other and cross all limits,
and the growth of the cyberspace continues and new
devices join it every day and companies and
organizations seeking to connect it to remote areas
that have not yet connected to the Internet,
we can say that the Internet is a giant system
consisting of other systems smaller in size,
And if the cyberspace is one thing,
can we say that it has one owner?
Is there a specific person or
body that controls the internet?
Can someone have something that goes
beyond the borders of countries and oceans themselves?
This is what we will try to answer in our article today.
So who actually owns the internet?
There are two answers to this question,
the first is no one, and the second is a lot of people.
If you look at the Internet as a single unit if
no one owns it, there are organizations that
define the structure of the Internet and the way
it works but they have no ownership powers for
anything in the cyberspace, there is no government
or company that can claim to own the Internet,
we can liken the Internet to the telephone
system where there is no party A certain
possesses everything in it. From the other
point of view, we can assume that thousands
and millions of people and companies own the Internet.
In the end, the Internet consists of small
and different components, each of which
has its own owner, some of whom can control the
quality and level of your access to the cyberspace,
but they do not have the entire system despite
their ability to influence your use of the Internet.
