Dear all,

Communia (http://www.communia-association.org/) released a policy
paper to define a Positive Agenda for the Public Domain:
http://www.communia-association.org/2012/12/05/communia-positive-agenda-for-the-public-domain/

This work-in-progress document presents policy recommendations for the
transnational level.

Grounded on Communia previous WIPO statements and a WIPO study by
Séverine Dusollier, the contribution aims at developing 3 policy
recommendations:
1. Definition of a positive status for the Public Domain
2. Recognition of the validity of voluntary dedication to the Public Domain
3. Facilitating the identification of the Public Domain status

We look forward to comments both on the content and strategy, legal
language will be drafted at a later stage, and for the moment the
examples come from Chilean law.

Thanks,
Melanie
