Access to knowledge movement

The Access to Knowledge (A2K) movement is a loose collection of civil society groups, governments, and individuals converging on the idea that access to knowledge should be linked to fundamental principles of justice, freedom, and economic development.

[edit] Treaty

The goals of Access to Knowledge are embodied in a draft treaty, emerging from a call from Brazil and Argentina for a development agenda for the World Intellectual Property Organization.[1] The treaty is intended to ease the transfer of knowledge to developing nations, and to secure the viability of open innovation systems all over the world.[2]
