The OECD has been he OECD is meeting this week on the Internet economy and has released a statement asking ISP's to 'voluntarily' monitor internet traffic for copyright violations. Rights organizations such as the EFF are outraged. As reported here, "The Civil Society Information Society Advisory Council (CSISAC), a group of over eighty members within the OECD, said they could not endorse the draft Communiqué." The CSISAC's statement is here. I'm not sure why OECD would feel we want to live in a surveillance society, but the recommendations are consistent with its pro-business stance in other areas.
