WIPO vs 1984

"The conclusion you presented to your African brothers, whose support you want for your re-election is a disgraceful fools market. An insult to their intelligence and to their integrity. It betrays your contempt for your interlocutors as well. Do you take your staff, your member states, your NGOs and the press for imbeciles?" —WIPO staff open letter to director Kamil Idris

See my own thoughts on the World Intellectual Property Organisation.
