36 1 Meet WIPO's new leader

Francis Gurry begins his six-year term as WIPO director general
this month. He takes over after a period in which the Organisation
has been attacked by users and member states, and risks becom-
ing irrelevant. In an exclusive interview, Gurry discusses the chal-
lenges affecting IP policy, what his priorities will be as director gen-
eral and the changes he will make to bring WIPO in from the cold.
