Krista L. Cox is the staff attorney for the nonprofit, nongovernmental organization, Knowledge Ecology International. She specializes in copyright and patents in the social justice context, particularly as they relate to access to knowledge and access to medicine issues. She can be reached at krista.l.cox@gmail.com.

The World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) has been considering several proposals for an international instrument to expand access to copyrighted information for persons who are blind, visually impaired, or have other disabilities. Although it has been discussed for nearly 30 years, a diplomatic conference to negotiate the text of such a treaty has yet to be convened.
