This is why I think all this debates on the internet governance 
without a single allusion to the Tallinn Manual (which is not 
available for free on the Internet) are irreal.

I like the French position because it makes me to think about Grotius 
and the debate on free and closed seas, etc.  Have the Law of the 
Cyberspace been delayed by the US WCIT position or to the countrary 
is Sao Paulo a way to start anew?

The actual question is that anti-Nation-State wants to defend the 
idea that the prejudice is against the USG for interfering in the 
other nation's domestic and people private business. My understanding 
is that they want more to introduce the notion of Personal-State when 
relaity inclines to consider relations-states.

I do not know. The main problem we face anyway is that international 
laws are between States. And the mood in here is to ban States and 
Grotius' Westpahalian States legacy. This is why I feel safer on my 
own privateer's VGN.
