> When:
> On the 17 of December 2004
>
>
> Why:
>
> Art. 27 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) states that
> "everyone has the right freely to participate in the cultural life of
> the community, to enjoy the arts and to share in scientific advancement
> and its benefits" (paragraph 1) and therefore that "everyone has the
> right to the protection of the moral and material interests resulting
> from any scientific, literary or artistic production of which he is the
> author" (paragraph 2).
>
> In Resolutions 2000/7 and 2001/21 the Sub-Commission on Human Rights of
> the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, stated inter
> alia
> that:
> - the right provided by Art. 27, paragraph 2, of the UDHR is subject to
> limitations in the public interest;
> - the TRIPS Agreement does not adequately reflect the fundamental
> nature
> and indivisibility of all Human Rights;
> - the social function of intellectual property should be considered in
> the law making process.
>
> While Art. 15 of the International Covenant on Economic, Social and
> Cultural Rights contains equivalent provisions, the Committee on
> Economic, Social and Cultural Rights made a statement on Human Rights
> and intellectual property (E/C.12/2001/15) claiming that intellectual
> property regimes must be consistent with the rights in the Covenant.
>
> A similar conflict is evident in the Charter of Fundamental Rights of
> the European Union where, Art. 17, paragraph 2, states that:
> "Intellectual property shall be protected" but  other provisions
> (particularly Art. 11 on freedom of expression, Art. 13 on freedom of
> arts and scientific research and Art. 14 on freedom of education)
> provide for the individuals to enjoy the freedoms enumerated therein.
>
> The demand for a new balancing between fundamental Human Rights and IP
> protection is also felt in areas as diverse as access to life saving
> drugs and biodiversity. A number of constituencies feels that the
> current status along with some proposed trends in the evolution of the
> intellectual property regime may restrict fundamental freedoms and may
> fail to live up to the expectations of future generations.
>
> Focus on fundamental Human Rights could be an answer to resolving
> these tensions and could constitute a good starting point for a
> rethinking of an intellectual property regime that fosters wealth,
> growth and wellness in the knowledge society while preserving the
> rights and giving appropriate incentives to  innovators.
>
> The purpose of this conference is therefore to discuss the dynamics of
> this phenomenon.
