Hello. 

 

Please see the linked sign-on submission to USTR for the 2011 Special
301 Report. This is a very brief, very broad statement that PIJIP, EFF,
Public Knowledge and KEI staff thought could get wide support. It says
that the report shouldn't be used to advance TRIPS+ or US+ intellectual
property, or to force countries to sign the WIPO internet treaties or
ACTA.  It also discusses the process by which the report is written, and
the unilateral 301 report's awkward fit within the multilateral dispute
resolution system set up by WTO.  It asks the Obama administration to
research a pro-development copyright policy for its trade policy
objectives. 

 

Please consider signing the submission, and circulating it to others who
might be interested. To sign, send me your name and (if applicable)
organization by emailing my at mpalmedo at wcl.american.edu. 

 

Please send all signatures by the morning of Tuesday, February 15, 2011.
