Statement of the Internet Society
WIPO Diplomatic Conference
20-26 June, Beijing
Constance Bommelaer
Director, Public Policy

It is a great pleasure for the Internet Society to be here, in Beijing, for the WIPO Diplomatic Conference on the Protection of Audiovisual Performances.

We would like to thank the People’s Republic of China, the United Nations and all members and observers who have contributed to bringing us together today.

We welcome the commitment of WIPO member states to introduce international rules to provide adequate and balanced solutions for the protection of performers in their audiovisual performances. At this point in time, it is critical to take into account new economic, social and technological developments – such as the Internet and the digital revolution.
