I posted this article on +CNET earlier today about the ITU and deep packet inspection. This is probably the key excerpt:

Because Y.2770 is confidential, many details remain opaque. But a document posted by a Korean standards body describes how network operators will be able to identify "embedded digital watermarks in MP3 data," discover "copyright protected audio content," find "Jabber messages with Spanish text," or "identify uploading BitTorrent users." 

And perhaps this:

Approval by the U.N.'s International Telecommunications Union came despite objections from Germany, which warned the organization must "not standardize any technical means that would increase the exercise of control over telecommunications content, could be used to empower any censorship of content, or could impede the free flow of information and ideas."

Or from another point of view, it's providing more and more reason to deploy end to end encryption.
 
this is as bad as it gets. Pure distilled essence of tyranny.
