"A three-day meeting at the World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO) ended with members unable to reach a consensus on how to continue talks on integrating development concerns into WIPO's mandate and activities. Although most countries were in favour of holding further sessions of the 'Inter-sessional Inter-governmental Meeting' (IIM) that has been examining the issue, opposition from the US and Japan meant that no such recommendation will be made to the WIPO General Assembly when it meets in late September. Instead, the WIPO Secretariat will now draw up a factual report of the discussions, which will be finalised at a further meeting just prior to the General Assembly."
