WIPO’s upcoming annual meeting

For those of you interested in the future direction of international intellectual property rights, I recommend this summary of the upcoming annual meeting of the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) from the blog Intellectual Property Watch – WIPO’s Future Work, Past Credibility On Table At General Assemblies.
WIPO has a big agenda, including: IP in development; patent law harmonization; a new Broadcasters’ Rights Treaty; the issue of Intellectual Property and Genetic Resources, Traditional Knowledge and Folklore; and the Convention on Biological Diversity.
Another resource is the Consumer Project on Technology WIPO information web site, especially the web page on the Broadcasters Rights Treaty.
