How closely are you following this?

Today is day 1 of the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS - this link wasn't working at time of posting, for some reason) Tunisia - phase 2 (phase 1 was in Geneva in 2003). Between this summit, Minnesotan and Californian delegation visits to China, and Bush's trip to Asia, questions of knowledge ownership, intellectual property, piracy, etc. are all over the news. I, of course, am thrilled that IP and copyright are getting top billing. We'll see what comes of all of this discussion.

Since the WSIS page seems to be down, a decent alternative is the page for the United Nations Information and Communication Technologies Task Force Also, there has been good news coverage - check the latest (via Google News).
