New Public Interest Advocacy Group

Public Knowledge (PK) is a relatively new advocacy group whose agenda is to maintain free and open public access to digital data. According to President and co-founder Gigi B. Sohn, PK seeks to “promote a balanced approach to copyright policy that reflects the “cultural bargain” intended by the framers of the constitution – creators and innovators get incentives to create, which results in a robust public domain of shared knowledge.”
The site boasts an excellent design that clearly identifies the range of resources that the organization is providing to the public. These include: press releases, news headlines and news archive, commentary, many topical links to papers, articles, speeches and books, links to related advocacy groups, and historical information on patents.
