Obviously, such a World Intellectual Wealth Organisation would have to
take the place of the current WIPO -- whether it would be created as a
new initiative or whether WIPO would be transformed could not be
predicted at the current time.

This is obviously an activity that has to happen on United Nations
level if it is to have the effect we seek, which means that it is not
something that we could simply establish, it is something we have to
work for at that level.

FSFE has been pushing in that direction during the United Nations
World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS) [1] and will keep doing
so in the second phase. 

If you want to support our work with your donation, information on how
to do this can be found online [2] -- we should soon be able to accept
credit card donations, as well. Many others of the signatories are
also working in that direction and also need support, so you could
also donate there.
