CSISACĀ“s Submission on Internet Intermediaries (Updated)

August 24, 2009

CSISAC logo The Expert Group on Internet Intermediaries of the Civil Society Information Society Advisory Council (CSISAC) released a paper with recommendations to the OECD for its work in this area.

As CSISAC stated in the Civil Society Seoul Declaration, OECD Member countries should "maintain a balanced framework for intellectual property protection that is least intrusive to personal privacy, least restrictive for the development of new technologies, and that promotes creativity, innovation, and learning." The document highlight civil society concerns in what we see as the three main areas of focus of the ICCP report - (1) The Scope of the Report - Categorizing Internet Intermediaries; (2) Social and Economic Benefits provided by Internet Intermediaries; and (3) Co-operative Mechanisms including Legal Approaches to Intermediary Liability.

The Expert Group on Internet Intermediaries is led by the Electronic Frontier Foundation

CSISAC's Paper on Internet Intermediaries has been translated into Spanish by Phol Paucar.
