Help Put Fair Use and Transparency on the OECD Internet Agenda!

EFF is currently attending the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development's ministerial meeting on the future of the Internet Economy in South Korea. As ever when a new international venue for discussion of Net policy emerges, there's a strong risk that the usual vested interests will attempt to dominate and use it for their own agendas.

A broad group of civil society organizations have put together a declaration to the OECD ministers with our recommendations, to ensure that our views get heard alongside those of the many business and government interests represented here.

We are looking for co-signors from organizations and individuals before we present it at tomorrow's closing ceremony. If you'd like to sign on to the Civil Society Declaration, mail katitza@datos-personales.org. If you can provide names and contact details before 12 noon US EST (1700 UTC) today (June 17th) we'll add you to the signatories put before the OECD ministers.
