This article discusses the issues of governance of the internet and the information society. It suggests that there are no easy answers to many of the conflicts between business and civil society at all levels, and notes that business has had a strong voice in developing the rules that govern telecommunication policy globally. Since the author is the secretary general of the International Chamber of Commerce, the article has a strong pro-business bias. However, she concludes with some ideas for compromises that business can make without hurting its bottom line. While not dealing with rural issues specifically, nonetheless the article provides another side of the access story.
