Internet Society Liaison Report to the IAB 23 July 2012 Topics: I. ISOC briefing panel at IETF 84 II. WIPO III. The Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA) and the Trans- Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPPA) IV. Standing Committee on Copyright and Related Rights (SCCR/24), the World Intellectual Property Organization V. Resolution on Internet and Human Rights (5 July 2012) VI. IETF Public Policy Guests VII. ITU TSAG / Council meetings I. ISOC briefing panel at IETF 84 ISOC's briefing panel at the Vancouver IETF meeting will focus on discussing the impacts and concrete takeaways following the World IPv6 Launch in June 2012. For more details, see: http://www.internetsociety.org/node/20490 II. WIPO ISOC’s Constance Bommelaer and Christine Runnegar participated in the WIPO Diplomatic Conference on the Protection of Audiovisual Performances (20-26 June 2012, Beijing) where high-level representatives of member states gathered to finalise the text for a WIPO Audiovisual Performances Treaty. The signed treaty gives performers intellectual property rights at the international level in respect of their performances in audiovisual fixations. Successfully concluding a treaty is important for WIPO to demonstrate that it remains a viable place to achieve international agreement for intellectual property legal norms. It was also a litmus test for future discussions towards developing international legal norms on exceptions for persons with print disabilities, libraries, and archives. The Internet Society was one of a relatively small number of Observers present at the Diplomatic Conference and the only representative from the Internet community. Civil society was not present. Constance Bommelaer delivered the Internet Society's opening statement highlighting our organisation, calling on WIPO member states to adopt and implement the principles incorporated in the ISOC statement of principles, and to protect and preserve the Internet. III. The Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA) and the Trans- Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPPA) In the beginning of July and while negotiators were meeting in San Diego, US, to discuss the TPPA, the European Parliament voted to reject ACTA due to its controversial nature and its potential harm on Internet technologies. The Internet Society is paying close attention to the future of both the ACTA and the TPPA and has issued a press release, insisting on the need for transparency and openness in negotiations and, more importantly, the requirement for any legislation not to harm the Internet, its architecture and underlying technologies. Press release: http://www.internetsociety.org/news/ calling-open-and-international-dialogue-trans-pacific-partnership- agreement-negotiations IV. Standing Committee on Copyright and Related Rights (SCCR/24), the World Intellectual Property Organization The Internet Society, represented by Konstantinos Komaitis, is attending the 24th meeting of the Standing Committee on Copyright and Related Rights (SCCR) at the World Intellectual Property Organization. Discussions are focusing on exceptions and limitations for educational, teaching and research institutions, the protection of Broadcasting organizations, Exceptions and Limitations for the Persons with Disabilities, and for Libraries and Archives. The Internet Society will be submitting two statements - one on the issues concerning the Visually Impaired Persons (VIP) and the other on Broadcasting organizations. Both statements emphasize the need for any new Treaty discussions to be conducted under a multistakeholder framework and not to incorporate provisions contrary to the open and distributed architecture of the Internet. V. Resolution on Internet and Human Rights (5 July 2012) The 20th Human Rights Council has adopted a Resolution on the promotion, protection and enjoyment of human rights on the Internet. The proposal was led by Sweden and was subsequently co-sponsored by more than 80 countries. The Resolution affirms that the same rights that people have offline must also be protected online, and recognizes the global and open Internet as a driving force for development. It also calls upon all States to promote and facilitate access to the Internet. The Internet Society was one of the few non-governmental actors which took advantage of the opportunity to participate in some of the public drafting sessions leading to the adoption of this new Resolution and suggested the inclusion of the notion of the “open Internet” in the text, which was subsequently included in the final document. ("Recognizes the global and open Internet as a driving force in accelerating progress towards development in its various forms"). In a context of increasing pressures to encourage the use of technical measures to address various public policy objectives, this Resolution sends a very positive signal in favor of a rights-based and open Internet. For the text of the resolution see: ap.ohchr.org/documents/E/HRC/d_res_dec/A_HRC_20_L13.doc VI. IETF Public Policy Guests Building on our public policy program from IETF 83, ISOC is inviting another small group of public policy officials to attend the first part of IETF 84. In Vancouver, we’ll have guests from Papua New Guinea, Thailand, Trinidad & Tobago, Guatemala, and Canada. We are building the agenda now and, like the last meeting, will offer them the opportunity to meet in small groups with key experts on areas of interest and to attend a few of the Working Groups and Plenary sessions. At least one official has identified these issues as being of particular interest: security, Internet charging and management and governance of Internet resources. Additionally, as a result of the Paris public policy program, engineers from Cote d'Ivoire, Senegal and Cameroon are attending IETF 84 as part of the IETF Fellowship program. VII. ITU TSAG / Council meetings ISOC attended the recent ITU TSAG and ITU Council meetings. Discussions at both meetings are an important precursor to the WTSA and WCIT in Dubai later this year. At TSAG, issues related to MPLS, A-Series Recommendations (including Supplement 3 related to IETF), and the ITU-T work program were all debated. At the Council meeting, Member States took some very minimal steps forward on greater transparency of ITU processes, in particular the WCIT.
