      Access to Knowledge Conference
      Yale Information Society Project
      April 21-23, 2006
      Yale Law School
      http://islandia.law.yale.edu/isp/a2kconfmain.html

      The information revolution holds great promise for development,
      freedom, and justice, but this potential is fragile. Without a
      coherent framework for why access to knowledge matters and an agenda
      how to achieve it, this potential could be undermined by the growing
      propertization and regulation of knowledge. The Information Society
      Project (ISP) at Yale Law School invites you to help determine the
      future of A2K.

      From April 21st to April 23rd, 2006, join policy makers, activists,
      industry leaders, and academics at Yale Law School for a conference
      addressing this topic in areas such as intellectual property policy,
      telecommunications, education, culture, science, and health care.
      Leading thinkers and advocates from North, South, East and West will
      focus on generating cutting edge research agendas, concrete policy
      solutions, and strategic partnerships for the next decade.

      Please register from the conference website at
