Does Bill Gates own the internet?
Absolutely not ! No one single person or organisation owns the internet. It is a network of millions of computers all interconnected by fibre-optic cables.
In Bill Gates' own words, he believes "Philanthropy should be voluntary." Bill Gates is co-chair of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, which he founded. Along with co-chair Melinda Gates, he shapes and approves grant making strategies, advocates for the foundation's issues, and helps set the overall direction of the organization.
