Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request, 60073-60074 [2010-24354]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 188 / Wednesday, September 29, 2010 / Notices erowe on DSK5CLS3C1PROD with NOTICES removed, while preserving the ability of Internet intermediaries to continue to provide their vital services. • What is the impact of third party liability laws on businesses’ abilities to operate in global markets? How do businesses approach these differing liability regimes? • To what extent do various governments’ third party liability laws allow for immunity with exceptions for Internet intermediaries? How useful are such laws? • Are there specific principles or factors that governments should take into account when dealing with content restrictions and the intermediaries who might be in a good position to monitor postings and remove illegal or objectionable content? • How might governments promote innovation in the provision of new intermediary services (e.g., by granting immunities), while at the same time encouraging responsible conduct by those same intermediaries? 5. Trade Agreements Trade and investment rules exist in WTO commitments, FTAs, and other international treaties or agreements. The WTO addresses the free flow of information in multiple ways. For example, Members currently abide by a moratorium on customs duties on electronic transmissions. In addition, WTO member governments allow crossborder trade in services through commitments made in the General Agreement on Trade in Services, FTAs, and other international treaties or agreements, which support trade in digital products or ease restrictions on market access for certain information communication technology products and services. • How might bilateral or multilateral trade or other agreements promote the free flow of information over the Internet? • How might these agreements promote transparency and the provision of due process in the creation and application of government restrictions to the free flow of information online? • With respect to cloud or other Webbased services, are there specific trade disciplines that can enhance market access for all providers and increase legal certainty for potential users? • What other affirmative trade obligations related to the free flow of information over the Internet should be considered? 6. International Cooperation There are several intergovernmental bodies, including the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:17 Sep 28, 2010 Jkt 220001 OECD, Council of Europe, and AsiaPacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) forum, that attempt to guide the growth of the Internet and online commerce through policy negotiations and dialogues. Multi-jurisdictional governmental organizations such as these have the benefit of being inclusive (in that by definition they represent the interests of member governments) and the potential to be authoritative. By their nature however, these organizations move at a deliberate pace, which means that fast-moving Internet issues can be difficult for them to address. Over the past decade the private sector, civil society, and academia increasingly have engaged in regional and international activities focused on the development of cross-border Internet policy. The IGF, for example, is a multi-stakeholder forum that places private sector, civil society and academic stakeholders on an equal footing with their government counterparts for an open and spirited dialogue on Internet policy. Another case in point is the Global Network Initiative, which is a voluntary multistakeholder initiative, composed of several human rights organizations and three major Internet companies who together aim to address restrictions on the free flow of information on the Internet.21 Advocates of multistakeholder initiatives point out that a less formal structure can be more nimble and thus in a better position to address the fast-changing nature of Internet offerings. Multi-stakeholder initiatives can be formed around discrete issues and can be populated by interested parties on an ad hoc basis. While such organizations cannot establish law or regulation, they can accelerate the articulation of acceptable norms seen as good practices for large segments of the population. • Are there some multi-jurisdictional, governmental forums or multistakeholder, private-sector organizations that are better suited than others to develop proposals or principles to guide governments as they develop policies concerning the free flow of information on the Internet? • What attributes should multistakeholder organizations or initiatives possess in order to maximize their efficacy? What makes them well-suited to develop principles and best practices to guide the private sector? Are there examples of industry best practices or codes of conduct which provide useful guidance on how businesses should 21 Global Network Initiative, available at http:// www.globalnetworkinitiative.org/ (2010). PO 00000 Frm 00009 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 60073 deal with restrictions on the free flow of information? • What are the pros and cons of turning to multi-stakeholder initiatives to accelerate norm development instead of international governmental bodies? • Has private-sector support for multi-stakeholder initiatives matured to the point where governments can rely on those initiatives for the long-term? Commenters should feel free to raise and address other governance questions as they see fit. Dated: September 23, 2010. Gary Locke, Secretary of Commerce. Lawrence E. Strickling, Assistant Secretary for Communications and Information. ´ Francisco J. Sanchez, Under Secretary of Commerce for International Trade.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Correction On September 2, 2010, the Department of Commerce (‘‘Department’’) published the amended final determinations pursuant to court decision in the investigations of certain frozen warmwater shrimp from Brazil, India, the People’s Republic of China, Thailand, and the Socialist Republic of Vietnam.

The Amended Final Determinations stated that the Department determined dusted shrimp to be within the scope of the investigations. Subsequent to the announcement and release of the Amended Final Determinations, the Department identified an inadvertent error.

Also, incorrect antidumping duty margins were listed for three of the Vietnamese companies.
