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 cyberspace is one thing, can we say that it has one owner? Is there a specific person or
a 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 on
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.
