Yup, WIPO talks "on indefinite hold"
Bill Heinze has a report that cannot be good news for developing countries: "the failure of the World Intellectual Property Organization's Standing Committee on the Law of Patents ("SCP") to reach an agreement on its work plan for patent law harmonization 'puts talks at WIPO on indefinite hold,' the USPTO said in a press release on June 9, 2005. 'The impasse also raises serious questions as to whether WIPO is even a viable forum for further meaningful patent discussions.'"
