    At the moment, the internet is like a modern wild west... we should enjoy the freedom while we can..

    "The simplest outcome is that we're going to end up breaking the Internet," Schmidt said. "Because what's going to happen is, governments will do bad laws of one kind or another, and they are eventually going to say, 'We want our own Internet in our country because we want it to work our way, right? And we don't want these NSA and other people in it.'""The cost of that is huge," Schmidt added. "The impact … is severe and getting worse."

    As an example of the potential for digital fragmentation across borders, Schmidt highlighted Germany's decision this summer to end a contract with Verizon because of revelations regarding the NSA's bulk collection of millions of phone records.

    I can't really see it happening to such a degree, though the main culprit is of course, the US. If anything does start to happen, it'll be global commerce companies moving their infrastructure away from the US.
