Freedom of Information Act
Requires World Assembly member states to release government documents to citizens upon request for a minimal or no fee. World Assembly member states are permitted to restrict the release of documents in certain cases, but must implement a judicial appeals process where citizens can challenge such restrictions.
Resolving WA Trade Disputes
Requires the World Assembly Trade Commission to offer non-binding mediation and binding arbitration services for international trade disputes between World Assembly member states.
World Assembly Trade Rights
Requires World Assembly member states to offer the same trade preferences to all other World Assembly states, as well as to apply the same taxes and regulations to goods and services from other member states as they would to goods and services of domestic origin. World Assembly member states are exempt from these requirements in certain cases, such as significant disparities in labour, environmental or human rights standards and national security threats.
On Multilateral Trade Talks
Mandates that international trade negotiations be held at the World Assembly at least once every ten years. All World Assembly member states are required to attend.
WA Development Foundation
Establishes the World Assembly Development Foundation, an organization devoted to promoting socioeconomic development in developing World Assembly member states through foreign investment and international trade. This organization conducts socioeconomic research in developing World Assembly member states, creates development strategies based on this research, and offers loans to help developing World Assembly member states implement their respective development strategies. It also insures foreign investments where necessary.
Foreign Copyright Recognition
Requires World Assembly member states to recognize the copyrights of works created in other member states for the lesser of 20 years or the period used by the member state of origin of the copyrighted work. The resolution also permits and encourages fair use and fair dealing.
Repeal "Vehicle Emissions Convention"
Repealed GAR #239, "Vehicle Emissions Convention", primarily because the resolution ignored the law of diminishing returns by requiring World Assembly member states to implement a progressive schedule for the reduction of automobile emissions even if current emissions levels were already relatively low.
Foreign Trademark Recognition
Requires member states to recognize trademarks of distributors located in other World Assembly member states for as long as the relevant distributors actively make use of their foreign trademarks when distributing goods and services in that World Assembly member state. World Assembly member states are permitted to refrain from recognizing foreign trademarks in certain cases, such as fraud.
Repeal "Access to Science in Schools"
Repealed GAR #48, "Access to Science in Schools", primarily because it required all schools in member states receiving government funding to include peer-reviewed science in their curricula, regardless of whether it actually made sense for that school to teach science.
Repeal "Rainforest Protection Act"
Repealed GAR #261, "Rainforest Protection Act", primarily because it banned certain agricultural and mining practices which can be practiced sustainably in rainforests. The repealed resolution also allowed a World Assembly committee to arbitrarily restrict forestry industries in member states.
Repeal "Internet Net Neutrality Act"
Repealed GAR #89, "Internet Net Neutrality Act", primarily because it prohibited Internet service providers from offering tiered services. The title of the resolution was also redundant.
Repeal "Industrial Pollution Control"
Repealed GAR #281, "Industrial Pollution Control", primarily because of its contradictory pollution reduction mandates and poor definitions.
Repeal "The General Patent Charter"
Repealed GAR #305, "The General Patent Charter", primarily because of its vague and contradictory patent renewal provisions.
On Universal Jurisdiction (repealed)
Grants universal jurisdiction for war crimes and crimes against humanity to World Assembly member states. Universal jurisdiction is the right to claim criminal jurisdiction for a crime allegedly committed by an individual, regardless of where or when the crime was allegedly committed, or the citizenship, nationality, or country of residence of that individual.
Minimum Standard of Living Act
Requires member states to guarantee a minimum standard of living to their respective national populations, without requiring the use of a particular social policy, such as a living wage, to achieve this goal.
Foreign Patent Recognition (repealed)
Requires member states to recognize patents recognized by other member states for the lesser of 10 years or the period used by the member state that granted the patent. World Assembly member states are permitted to refrain from recognizing foreign patents in certain cases, such as failure to release the relevant patent application in a timely manner.
Repeal "Foreign Patent Act"
Repealed GAR #388, "Foreign Patent Act", primarily because it created an opt-out system for international patent recognition. This allowed member states to mass produce and sell inventions at a fraction of the cost required to develop them and so inevitably undercut the original inventors on global markets.
International Patent Agreement
Created an international system for the recognition of patents. Established the World Assembly Patent Office, which is responsible for processing patent applications from World Assembly member states and granting patents valid in all member states.
Repeal "Internet Neutrality Act"
Repealed GAR #398, "Internet Neutrality Act", primarily because it used an overly broad definition of "Internet" and prohibited various forms of reasonable network management by Internet service providers.
Convention on Internet Neutrality
Enacted limited network neutrality regulation for Internet service providers operating in the World Assembly.
Repeal "Protection of Biomedical Research"
Repealed GAR #420, "Protection of Biomedical Research", primarily because it prohibited numerous forms of legitimate bioethical regulation of biomedical research by member states.
Convention on Foreign Political Corruption
Prohibits member states from bribing foreign public officials, except in cases where the foreign member state explicitly permits such conduct.
Ban on Statutory Limitations for Heinous Crimes
Prohibits member states from instituting statutory limitations for war crimes, crimes against humanity, and crimes against peace.
