Intellectual Property Issues in ICT4D
My report, Intellectual Property Issues in ICT4D, is now available online. Prepared for Canada's International Development Research Centre, this report reviews intellectual property issues in the area of information and communication technologies for development (ICT4D). Issues covered include open access, Creative Commons, free and open source software, copyright limitations and exceptions, traditional knowledge, collective management organizations, competition policy, the WIPO development agenda, and the draft Access to Knowledge Treaty as they relate to intellectual property and developing countries.
