Paris Agreement on Cybercrime Falls Short of Unanimous Agreement

More than 50 nations and 150 global companies agree to join effort to fight cybercrime.

A group of 50 nations and 150 companies signed an agreement to fight cybercrime and other illicit activity, including election tampering and hate speech, on the Internet. French president Emmanuel Macron had pushed for the agreement, reached one day after a gathering of global leaders in Paris.

The French leader, calling for greater regulation of the Internet, said that there's an urgent need for better regulation of the global network. As part of that effort, he said that Facebook has agreed to allow a team of French officials to observe the social network's efforts to monitor and delete hate speech.

While agreed to by many, the statement, titled, "Paris call for trust and security in cyberspace," was not universally accepted, with Russia, China, and the US among the holdouts. Some American companies, will, however, be involved.

Global concern
It takes the cooperation from everyone if we wish to make this happen. We need to know that we can get the commitment of every single party that is involved to gain as many resources as possible to eradicate this long-ongoing issue. This isn't a small matter that we are handling but it concerns every single person on earth. Now, that's a great deal of work to deal with so we need everyone's agreement!

Help when it's needed
Ok this shocks me that there could be people who wouldn't agree to such a contract. Perhaps some countries just don't want to have to protect others, but I reckon that we need everybody to cooperate to make cyberspace more protected for everyone right? How can some of them be so selfish?
