ITU Approves DPI Recommendation (T.2770); Google Protests

The ITU approved on November 20, the Y.2770 Recommendation- "Requirements for deep packet inspection in Next Generation Networks".

The ITU does not publish the recommendation to the public, but I was able to locate what seems to be one of the revisions of the document (here).

The recommendation opened a public relations battle (see "ITU packet inspection standard raises serious privacy concerns" - here). Google joined the battle in a colorful way - its home page is now linking to "Take Action", calling for a "A free and open world depends on a free and open web" (here).
