  • The Andean Free Trade Agreement with USA
    • Biopatents - Biodiversity
      • The Andean region is becoming known as the 'biopiracy capital' of the world. We are deeply worried by monopoly patents on our food crops and medicinal plants. These patents claim novel inventions, but everyone knows they are based on the traditional knowledge and resources of indigenous peoples.
      • The Peruvian Congress has passed legislation to protect the country’s biodiversity by restricting patents on biological resources. The Law Protecting Access to Peruvian Biological Diversity and the Collective Knowledge of Indigenous Peoples (Law 28216)
    • Traditional Knowledge
      • World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) promotes intellectual property as a means of protecting indigenous knowledge
      • Patenting indigenous knowledge is morally wrong and unacceptable. The knowledge of indigenous communities must be considered as a legacy from the past generations to present and future generations. Thus, the present generations are but custodians or administrators of said knowledge to their own benefit and that of future generations. Therefore the communities not only have the right to a fair and equitable distribution of the benefits deriving from the use of their knowledge, but also the right to decide and dispose of it. Thus, they must be able to reservethe right to deny access to their knowledge.
      • UNESCO Convention on Cultural Diversity. The Convention is meant to protect each country's ability to make media and cultural policy that favors cultural diversity. If successful, the convention could provide a kind of legal defense against attacks on media and cultural diversity under the so-called 'free trade' deals. Also troubling is language that recently snuck into the draft text that would support the global export of US-style, maximalist copyright law, further erode the public domain, and undermine the creative commons.
    • Intellectual property proposals being negotiated in a free trade agreement between the United States, Peru, and other Andean countries could severely restrict access to essential medicines for millions of people in Peru and other parts of the Andean region according to the international medical humanitarian organization Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF). MSF warns that the negotiations being launched next week are part of a US strategy to span the globe with bilateral and regional free trade agreements that undermine international consensus reached at the World Trade Organization (WTO) about the appropriate balance between the protection of private intellectual property and the protection of public health. These agreements will make it impossible for dozens of countries to uphold their right and obligation to ensure access to affordable medicines for their populations.

Stallman, initiator of the free software movement, founder of the GNU project and of the Free Software Foundation, was the speaker at the conference The Free Software Movement and the GNU/Linux Operating System organized jointly by CPSR-Peru [6] and Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú, on Friday August 20, 2004.
