The World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO) is to stage its second major international conference on the trademark and copyright problems caused by the development of the Internet and e-commerce.

Representatives from industry, governments and academic institutions will meet in Geneva from 19 to 21 September to discuss recent and future commercial and technological developments on the Web and their impact on the intellectual property system

A WIPO statement said delegates would examine issues including "creation, ownership, identity and governance on the Internet".

It added that speeches and seminars would focus on Internet domain names, business methods patenting, Web site branding, rights management systems, privacy, digital cultural heritage and the digital divide.

Online intellectual property administration, new top-level domain names, jurisdiction and applicable law and the influence of new information technologies on intellectual property service delivery will also be discussed

The first WIPO conference, held in September 1999, led to the acceptance of ICANN and the resulting launch of the Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy, a WIPO-operated procedure settling disputes over the ownership of Web addresses.
