UPDATE:   The Washington Declaration on Intellectual Property and the Public Interest has been released by a group of over 170 policymakers and advocates from approximately 35 countries who met August 25-27 at American University Washington College of Law.  It provides a series of specific recommendations for action by the international intellectual property public interest community.

The global intellectual property landscape has witnessed important changes in recent years. Most notably, the public interest dimension of intellectual property has emerged as a paramount concern. Though there seems to be a fairly broad agreement on the need for a more balanced intellectual property system which effectively promotes innovation, views diverge on how to best achieve it.  The Global Congress on Intellectual Property and the Public Interest brought together scholars, policymakers, and policy advocates to discuss and to deliberate about the opportunities for constructing a positive policy and research agenda.  Following the Congress, participants continued to collaborate online to produce the Washington Declaration.

The Global Congress wa co-organized by American University Washington College of Law’s Program on Information Justice and Intellectual Property, Fundação Getulio Vargas’s Center for Technology and Society (Brazil), the American Assembly at Columbia University and the International Centre for Trade and Sustainable Development (Geneva), with additional sponsorships from Google Inc., the International Development Research Centre, Open Society Foundation, the Institute for Global and International Studies at George Washington University, Seattle University School of Law, Institute for Information Law and the American University International Law Review.

  20. I don’t know whether it’s just me or if perhaps everybody else encountering issues with
    your website. It appears as if some of the written text on your content are running off the screen.
    Can somebody else please comment and let me know if this is happening to them as well?
    This could be a issue with my web browser because I’ve had this happen before.

    Kudos
