In terms of relative signficance to country's economies :
In 2010, the internet economy in the G20 group of leading nations was worth $2.3tn - larger than the economies of Italy or Brazil, but a mere 4.1% of the total size of all G20 economies. [bbc.co.uk...]
Whoever dominates this, indirectly influences policy and business across those nations. No wonder regulators and business needs to be wary.
