#1 Intellectual Property is complete bullshit and bastards like WIPO are a plague on us dirt people. The time is long past when copying meant writers of sheet music didn't get paid. Now it's megabillion dollar corporations getting Youtubers banned for including a fair use clip from Lion King or a Nelly song.

#3 [Wiki]The World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO; French: Organisation mondiale de la propriété intellectuelle (OMPI)) is one of the 15 specialized agencies of the United Nations (UN)...Headquarters Geneva, Switzerland...

So an organ of the UN (#1) based in (#2) Switzerland in the middle of the EU (#3) in a "totally independent and unbiased survey" announces that yet another EU nation is the pinnacle of human progress ...unexpectedly. Additionally in the country they have their headquarters, how absolutely precious.

#6 The Dutch should be #1 or #2. Look at ASML the one company actually making Moore's Law happen with innovation after innovation.

#8 Switzerland is not where the innovations occur. It's where the paperwork is filed.

See: Delaware corporation.

Thank you, Wipe-O. How helpful of you. Maybe the only reason China is a member.

How China is infiltrating Switzerland.
