On the 6th day of the WCIT summit, Dec 8th 2012 at the World Trade Conference in Dubai some progress is being made, one resolution so far adopted.
The 10 articles of the ITR treaty are being negotiated and discussed in Working Group 5 and its ad-hoc meetings, however those meetings are not webcasted. There seems to have been a protest against such approach asking for more transparency which resulted in parts of the ITU’s site being unavailable: http://www.itu.int/net/pressoffice/press_releases/2012/91.aspx#.UMCckYX42mF
The Internet Society issued the following statement: http://www.internetsociety.org/news/internet-society%E2%80%99s-statement-addressing-reported-attacks-against-itu-website
Civil Society issued this letter yesterday: http://www.twitlonger.com/show/k8vqj0
On Monday, Civil Society will meet with SG of the ITU.
Here is a useful guide to all proposals www.wcit-proposals.info where you can find proposals from all countries, since it is not possible to get access to the documents unless you are part of any state member delegation.
Bulgarian delegation has their position posted on the ISOC’s Bulgaria website here: http://isocbg.wordpress.com/2012/12/07/eu-on-wcit12/. It would have been good to have had Serbian position posted somewhere as well, in writing, though we have heard on our recent panel that the Serbian delegation will be in line with the CEPT and EU language.
Most important document that never made it to the official ITU’s site was leaked on wcitleaks.org website. More here:
It was apparently a merged UAE document that incorporated Russian, Chinese, Saudia Arabian, Algerian, Sudanese and Egyptian proposals, the wishful thinking text version that those Member States would like to see incorporated in the ITRs treaty. It contained most of our concerns with regards to the ITR treaty going outside its remit and including the security/spam/content/ICTs word (read the Internet), though according to a tweet from Dina, Egypt will deny their participation on Monday.
