Reporting format by OpenNet Initiative

opennet initiative logoThe OpenNet Initiative has proposed a basic format for recording, tracking and sharing of information about the requests Internet organizations receive for content removal or user account details.

While the HK Transparency Report has adopted this format as a basic approach, we will seek to adapt it to local situations.

One limitation of the OpenNet format is that it does not offer an easy way to record incomplete data.  The table also does not provide for ways to record the information  obtained from two sources. Nevertheless, we encourage OSPs to release information on the requests they have received from government according to the proposed format.  A standardized format will allow the public to easily compare the nature of the requests.
