Washington Declaration on Intellectual Property and the Public Interest

At American University, we recently hosted an amazing gathering of about 170 thoughtful experts on intellectual property law from around the world to chart policy proposals that would make intellectual property law better serve its role in society. This inaugural Global Congress on Intellectual Property and the Public Interest discussed and debated a range of policy initiatives that would better adapt and rebalance the rights and obligations of rightsholders and the public.

There are many feasible opportunities, but recently, the attention of some policymakers has been turned toward misguided or ham-handed enforcement proposals.  So, it's time to change the conversation.  Please help by signing the Washington Declaration on Intellectual Property and the Public Interest.
