US Renews Effort To Topple WIPO Director General

An Intellectual Property Watch article by William New discusses the efforts by US government representatives to topple current WIPO Director General Kamil Idris. While there are credibility problems with the current director, it worries me even more when United States Ambassador to the United Nations Warren Tichenor suggests that the US is seeking a replacement given they may push for a replacement that will promote the interests of the special interests promoted by the USPTO/USTR rather than the interests of creators and other citizens of the world.
