Chapter Summary

The Internet Society (ISOC) was founded as a non-profit, non-governmental membership society with the aim of promoting the development, availability, and the associated technologies of the Internet. ISOC is closely linked to the Internet Architecture Board (IAB). Organization members are categorized into six different levels of membership, depending on the organizations' specific needs and the annual funding they provide. ISOC's individual members are often affiliated to ISOC Chapters. Chapters encompass at least 25 individual members from different geographic regions. ISOC's staff members are situated in the different geographic regions of ISOC's Chapters and Regional Bureaus. ISOC's largest source of revenue stems from the .ORG contributions to ISOC's programmes, which are managed by the Public Interest Registry (PIR). ISOC addresses different challenges to the common and open Internet. Particularly the technological solutions for multilingualism in the Internet remain a prevailing issue.
