who owns the internet? i'm a complete technology ignoramus with a somewhat instinctive understaning how most things work. can you please humor me and tell me who owns the internet? e.g. why do i have to pay for registering a new domain name, who gets this money and why? who supports the entire internet system and how? who is in control?
