Today, March 14th, 2023, Luis Villarroel (NGO INNOVARTE’s Director) met with Sofia Boza (Ambassador of Chile to the World Trade Organization). The meeting took place within the framework of the 43rd version of the World Intellectual Property Organization’s (WIPO) Standing Committee on Copyright and Related Rights (SCCR).

The meeting sought to share Civil Society’s considerations regarding the work agenda of the Standing Committee on Copyright and the need to extend the Treaty of Marrakesh to other people with disabilities, as well as to move towards appropriate instruments to address the needs to protect the work of educators, libraries and researchers, including text and data mining.

The proposal to reach an agreement on the provision of public goods in the WTO was also presented. NGO INNOVARTE thanked the Embassy for its interest in engaging with civil society on these issues.
