What the WTO Treaty did in Hongkong and what that means for us

The TRIPS Treaty is one of the most discussed within the WTO. Its impact on knowledge and so-called intellectual property rights is huge, not only for developing countries. This talk will give the listener a short introduction on the main principles of TRIPS, who stands behind it and what chances a different treaty could bring. As the WTO meeting in Hong Kong is just two weeks in advance of the 22c3, there will be much news on the progress of the treaty. With Oliver Moldenhauer being an NGO representative at the WTO conference we'll have first-hand experience on the debates amongst NGOs and press in Hong Kong.

Much of this talk is going to be dead on time: Oliver Moldenhauer will attend the WTO conference as a NGO representative, his way will take him from HongKong directly back home and into 22C3. As many variables still exist, no exact contents of this talk can be given up to a few days before the conference. Stay tuned for the newest developments, as well as ten years of history of strengthening IP-Rights throughout the world
