Thomson/WIPO partner up

from a news release:

The IP Solutions business of Thomson Reuters has announced a partnership with the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) for the launch of the Access to Specialised Patent Information (ASPI) programme. The ASPI programme will provide industrial property offices and government and academic researchers in developing countries with free and low-cost access to comprehensive patent information, to foster innovation and participate more fully in the global economy.

Innovation is reportedly beginning to lead BRIC (Brazil, Russia, India and China) and VISTA (Vietnam, Indonesia, South Africa, Turkey and Argentina) nations to advance technically, economically and socially. The economies of the latter have been forecast to grow 25.5 times more rapidly than today's seven most industrialised countries by 2050.
