WIPO member states: drop the Diplomatic Conference!

WIPOWIPO member states are rebelling against the drive to convene a Diplomatic Conference to negotiate a Broadcasting Treaty (via A2K). The United States commented:

We are concerned that a diplomatic conference to consider this document at this time would not be successful because there is so much to be resolved. In fact, many countries left the last SCCR feeling uncomfortable about the convening of a conference.

The General Assembly has adjourned for informal discussions this afternoon. Will the member states finally force WIPO to take account of their views?
