Examine different initiatives on the equitable use of ICT applications, access to quality contents and information in the public domain and intellectual property rights, and the development of "fair use principles" in the Internet Age,

  • Develop a position paper on these issues and draft a Vilnius Declaration advising governments on strategies for the use of ICT.
