The global information society could become the  basis for a socially and environmentally sustainable  economic growth model, promoting democracy worldwide,  provided that access to information and knowledge remains  open and is even expanded. The Greens fight all attempts to further privatise the internet and to limit knowledge transfer  through excessive patent rights. As first steps, Greens want the non-commercial use of the internet to remain  principally exempted from all sanctions and  the  European Patent Office to be turned into an institution of the European Community.
