What’s Going on At WIPO? Tumult Over New Director General Gurry

June 21, 2008

Fresh off my RSS reader:

Joff Wild at Intellectual Asset Management Magazine has filed two interesting posts suggesting that there may be some resentment at WIPO following Francis Gurry’s election as the new Director General.

Here’s the first one from earlier this week.

Here’s the second one from earlier today.

Apparently, Brazil’s WIPO reps may be challenging his election (I’m still not clear on what grounds).

I don’t know much more yet, but I’m going to try to follow the story.
