What You Can Do About WIPO
As Cory notes over @ BoingBoing, Brazilian copyright scholar Pedro de Paranaguá Moniz has drafted a public letter urging broad reform in the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) -- including putting an end to the multiple procedural blockades the organization has erected to stop public-interest organizations and developing countries from fully participating in WIPO decisionmaking. At stake in the struggle is the future direction of global intellectual property law and policy and everything/everyone it impacts.
The letter invites you to sign on so you can have your signature on the letter when it's presented to WIPO. If you support transparency, participation, balance, and access in the WIPO process, I encourage you to read the letter and sign on now.
