The Internet Society Mexico Chapter actively participated in local Internet policy activities during February 2008.
In particular, there has been intense activity around the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement, ACTA. This will soon be put forward for signature, and is considered to contain risks to the Internet.
Several members – Erik Huesca, Leon Felipe Sanchez, Carmen Rodriguez-Armenta, Emilio Saldaña, and others including the Chapter Chair, Alejandro Pisanty, took part in the open consultations called for by the Senate of the Republic, through its Plural Technical group on ACTA.
The group of Internet Society Mexico Chapter members has had a distinguished participation in these debates, conveying Internet principles and calling for open, multi-stakeholder discussion of this and other matters of Internet Governance. Some of the group’s proposals have been taken into consideration by the Senate from its first session. The consultations will continue into April 2011.
