WIPO What is Intellectual Property

Indian Users’ Perspective On WIPO Negotiations On Treaty For Visually Impaired  February 16, 2013 – 01:16 pm
investment in children's education, health and nutrition, which in turn South-East Asia is host to one-third of the world’s 39 million blind people. Over 20 million live in India alone. This week’s special session of the World Intellectual Property Organization aims to clean up the text of an international treaty to facilitate access to books for the blind and visually impaired community.
