Stevie Wonder on Declaration of Freedom

In what is possibly the coolest thing to have happened at WIPO ever, Stevie Wonder calls on WIPO to fix copyright and enact "a declaration of freedom to secure to every single human being the opportunity to live the freedom knowing that they have accessibility to information throughout the world."

Performing for the WIPO audience, Wonder noted, "The reason that you know this song is because it's accessible to you. You can read the words; maybe sang this song; maybe danced to this song." "I'd like to see a declaration of freedom for those who are blind or visually impaired - not just those who are blind - those who are deaf, those who are paraplegic, quadriplegic or other."

Promising a celebratory concert at WIPO next year if this is achieved, Wonder left off with the words, "It's on you - do what you gotta do."
