Supporting the Geneva Declaration



Det ville måske være særdeles relevant at skrive en PM om dette,
siden det er et forsøg på at ændre WIPO's charter, således at
det handler mindre om at beskytte med patenter og mere om friheden
til at dele viden.

The Geneva Declaration [1] is an impressive step towards the creation of a
broad coalition of people, organisations and countries [2] demanding that
the international community re-think the goals and mechanisms for awarding
monopoly control over different kinds of knowledge. It offers many
constructive, concrete suggestions for changes in WIPO goals, policies and
priorities, and provides ample and insightful arguments for redesign of the
copyright and patent bargains to better serve the public interest of all of
humankind.

We are convinced that new answers sometimes require new questions, not more
careful repetition of old questions. A World Intellectual Property
Organisation will always, understandably, lean towards applying the
pre-selected tool-set of monopolisation that it refers to as Intellectual
Property; a term that we find to be ideologically charged and dangerously
oblivious to the significant differences that exist between the many areas
of law that it tries to subsume.

While it may look at better, possibly more socially sustainable ways of
granting ownership-like monopolies over different forms of knowledge, WIPO
will not have an easy time looking for alternative solutions. WIPO is not
what we need.

We need a World Intellectual Wealth Organisation, dedicated to the research
and promotion of novel and imaginative ways to encourage the production and
dissemination of knowledge. Granting limited monopolies and limited control
over some kinds of knowledge may be part of this new organisations
tool-set, but not the only one, and maybe not even the most important one.

We endorse and support the Geneva Declaration, and invite its drafters,
signatories, and the United Nations to start thinking now not only about
what the role of WIPO should be, but rather what kind of organisation we
need in its place.
