Access to knowledge in the age of intellectual property by Gaëlle Krikorian( Book )

8 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 310 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The end of the twentieth century saw an explosive intrusion of intellectual property law into everyday life. Expansive copyright laws have been used to attack new forms of sharing and remixing facilitated by the Internet. International laws extending the patent rights of pharmaceutical companies have threatened the lives of millions of people around the world living with HIV/AIDS. For decades, governments have tightened the grip of intellectual property law at the bidding of information industries. Recently, a multitude of groups around the world have emerged to challenge this wave of enclosure with a new counterpolitics of "access to knowledge" or "A2K." They include software programmers who take to the streets to attack software patents, AIDS activists who fight for generic medicines in poor countries, subsistence farmers who defend their right to food security and seeds, and college students who have created a new "free culture" movement to defend the digital commons. In this volume, Gaëlle Krikorian and Amy Kapczynski have created the first anthology of the A2K movement, mapping this emerging field of activism as a series of historical moments, strategies, and concepts. Intellectual property law has become not only a site of new forms of transnational activism, but also a locus for profound new debates and struggles over politics, economics, and freedom. This collection vividly brings these debates into view and makes the terms of intellectual property law legible in their political implications around the world

La propriété ou la vie? économies morales, actions collectives et politiques du médicament dans la négociation d'accords de libre-échange : Maroc, Thaïlande, États-Unis by Gaëlle Krikorian( Book )

At the beginning of the years 2000, the United States of America launch a séries of negotiation for bilatéral trade agreements. The issue of intellectual property and of its impact on access to medicines, raised during previous multilatéral negotiations at the WTO, corne to the surface again, under the pressure of an AIDS épidémie still expending. Based on field work conducted in three countries, the United States of America, Morocco and Thailand, I propose a sociological analysis of the way health and access to medicines are taken into account in the context of the negotiations of Free Trade Agreements. Thèse negotiations, taken here as a stratégie site to study processes of the current globalization, are the scène of the expression of a conflict between defenders of access to medicines and promoters of intellectual property. The démonstration of the complexity of the interactions between social actors shows that the issue can not be reduced to the unequivocal imposition of norms and rules by the United States of America : it is on the contrary the result of power relations and influences, always embedded into spécifie contexts. The historicisation of the conflict and its analysis through the use of the tools provided by the sociology of social movements demonstrate that it reflects the deployment of two mirror non governmental collective actions aiming at opposite goals and looking at influencing the production of State's positions and politics. Beyond the purely materialistic dimension of the impossibility of populations in poor countries to access the medicines that they need, collective actions resort on moral motives to articulate politically their demands. A compétition between moral économies develops locally as well as globally ; it characterizes a contemporary way to do politics
