KEI has obtained a copy of a letter from Karl De Gucht of DG-TRADE to Andris
Piebalgs of DG-DEVCO.  De Gucht is defending his approach to IPR and access
to medicines.  The letter provides a lot of insight into the EU/India
negotiation on data exclusivity, the opposition of DG-TRADE to a new TRIPS
extension for LDCs, and  the views of De Gucht on WIPO technical assistance,
in light of the WIPO development agenda.  (De Gucht refers a "crisis which
WIPO has had to face.")
