The BBC reports on what it can in its piece, UN internet regulation treaty talks begin in Dubai.
There is no official public copy of the entire treaty, just individual provisions that are supposedly in the treaty being released by individual countries.
The European Union and Google don’t like what they’ve seen of the provisions, but all they get from the ITU is ‘trust us’.
The treaty is given to the countries on December 3rd and they are given 10 days to respond. Why not publish the proposed treaty so all those concerned can see what is being proposed? This is like the ACTA treaty that was negotiated in secret, so people couldn’t make informed decisions about its worth.
If you want people to trust you, you should try being transparent in the way you operate.
