in my capacity as a HLMC member I have spoken up against free flow of 
information in the human rights section because free flow of information 
is not a human right. Ironically, someone from the business sector 
objected to removing this term from the human rights section.

I am reporting this to illustrate that the negotiation of the text 
hasn't always followed the distribution of power and interest that some 
on this list may assume. The draft document represents victories and 
defeats on all sides.
