Ahoy! Biopirates Wanted!

At the March 2006 meeting of the Convention on Biological Diversity (in Curitiba Brazil) civil society will be awarding prizes to those who either commit biopiracy or fight against biopiracy. We need YOUR nominations.

Nominate yer Pirates!

What's the most outrageous biopiracy case in your country? Who's ripping off indigenous knowledge in your community? Who's monopolizing your genes or patenting your plants? Has anyone trademarked your favorite patron saint? We need your help to identify the greediest, most offensive and dangerous biopirates from across the globe. Click here to nominate them for a Captain Hook award...

Rewards for the Resistance

We also need nominations for those who have bravely fought against acts of biopiracy. Do you know a person, organisation or government who has fended off patents or defended People's rights? Click here to nominate them for a Cog award...
