Cyberspace is the global collection of computers, networks and attached equipment integrated via the Internet, a packet-based communication system.  Because domain names and packet routes can be corrupted and computers penetrated, data can be stolen or corrupted and networks disrupted. Internet globalization raises policy issues concerning content, IP, trade, crime, rights, network performance, and conflict. In this talk we examine these issues and offer suggestions to reduce the risks introduced by them, which is the Internet governance problem.
