> Dear friends
> attached you'll find the final version of the declaration concerning G8
> and IPR. Thanks to all of you who provided comments, critics and help in
> the last weeks – this was very helpful and I think we now have a much
> better declaration than we had in the beginning of this process. The
> debate on content is closed now but please, if you find any mistakes
> concerning the language used please send me a mail.
> Now search for first signatories has to be started – next Wednesday (May
> 23rd) the meeting of the G8 ministers on IPR is starting and so we
> should send out press-releases on Tuesday, May 22nd  to ensure that
> newspapers writing on the start of that meeting take in the declaration
> (for more information on this please see below).
> So time is short and I want to ask you first to SIGN ON AS FIRST
> SIGNATORY (organizations as well as private persons are invited) and
> second to SHARE THE STATEMENT with people you know, send it to relevant
> People wishing to be first signatories can either SEND A MAIL TO ME (if
> you are representing a organization please send your logo as well as
> your web address - buhr at wissensallmende.de ) OR WRITE YOUR SIGNATORY
> DIRECT INTO THE wiki (http://declarationg8andipr.pbwiki.com/ , password:
> g82007). This list is intended to give all of us an overview on who
> already signed on and I will include signatories I receive per mail
> there as well.
> For having a faster flow of information I included everyone involved in
> the process till now into a mailinglist. It is not moderated so please
> feel free to post comments and ideas.
> ***************
> Press releases
> ***************
> We plan to announce this declaration on May 22nd GMT+1 with permission
> to print the statement on the 23rd.
> Questions:
> Should we send out joint press releases nation by nation? We will make a
> draft release over the weekend in German. If anyone is interested in
> joining us or getting our draft to use it for your own press release
> please contact me. I will send out a link to a wiki page with the draft
> on Sunday evening.
> Who else plans to release something at that date or possibly later?
> Please send a short note to the list. If for this an English translation
> of the German press release would be helpful than please give me a hint
> – I'll try my best.
> If you have personal contact to a journalist it would be very helpful if
> you could forward the release directly to him.
> ************
> Translations
> ************
> A German translation will be ready by Monday morning. As there are
> possibly discussions on that to be made it would be very helpful if all
> German friends wishing to be included in this discussion send me a short
> message. I than will send a link to a wiki with the text to you on
> Monday and hope that we have it ready at the evening. If there is a
> chance please take note on this in your schedule.
> Does anyone planning to translate to other languages?

> Official Website for signing on
> *******************************
> Signing on should be opened on May 23rd around noon to be ready if
> newspapers and other media are picking up this topic.
> We will need one place where we collect all signatories. It would be
> possible to do this on our web page (www.wissensallmende.de) if you like
> that idea. I hope to be able to ensure that we have a good tool for
> this. I will get more information on this on Friday. If you have a tool
> for collecting signatures online please say hello. Also if you are very
> familiar with typo3 – which we use on our page – our webmaster will me
> very pleased by a helping hand.
> ****************************************************************
> More detailed criticism on G8 policy to be included on websites
> ****************************************************************
> I think we need more detailed critics besides this statement to include
> it on the web page where later people and organizations will be able to
> sign on.
> We already have some more detailed critics on our chancellors plans –
> but I fear I'll not be able to write it down over the weekend – I'll try
> to write a statement on the German chancellors plans at the beginning of
> the week. If anyone would be able to translate it from German to English
> it would be very great.
> Also it would be great if some people could provide a written critic on
> their governments position or on politics of other G8 members as well.
> Please send a short message to this list if you already have some or if
> you'd like to write something, perhaps other people would like to join you.
> So - this for the moment - I'm looking forward to your replies, ideas
> and critics and hoorays.
> All best,
