The more the UN is involved in something, the more restrictions will happen. Dictators and murderers all over the world are wishing for the UN to take over the internet, as they will be the ones who benefit the most from it.

There're so many things incorrect in this post.

I'm an Apple fan about it's products, period. 

Upcoming hardware? What? Since when? It's mostly rumors. This is rumors and news site not some Apple Prediction and Time-Line site. How is it depressing? It's more amusing and entertaining than depressing. Nations in Africa are depressing, not Apple's legal war. Go outside sometimes, its nice.

In a way they do. Look up WIPO. Though I think WIPO is best to considered an intermediary for patent enforcement. But mostly you're right about that. I think the meeting is meant to foster some kind of discussion on how to deal with patents in industry standards. Maybe a more thorough vetting process on submitted technologies.

My post was actually directed at the Shaun, UK post, not yours. Sorry for the confusion.
