Hi Lorenzo,

Yes, definitely!

The development agenda is still very relevant - the library proposals are
in this context.

WIPO in general seems to be important enough to keep an eye on. There's a
broadcasting treaty going on, which is an example of a very restrictive
proposal. TV stations are pushing for additional copyright on content based
solely on the fact that it has been broadcast, even if the content is free.

> In short, it is a declaration that asks the World Intellectual Property
