Internet governance once took place through a social contract: good behavior from all parties produced a ripe environment for invention and innovation, and generated tremendous worldwide benefits. Over time, an influx of money and power began to break the Internet's utopia, leading to crime, censorship, and fights over control. Internet governance now requires a complex system of checks and balances among users, businesses, and governments - and too great a power imbalance among these groups could undermine some policy goals in favor of others.
