Intellectual Fairtrade makes a link to the international trade system Fairtrade which is an alternative approach to conventional trade and is based on a partnership between producers and consumers.

One of the symbols and most traded products of Fairtrade - coffee beans are also human brains, because the intellectual labor also needs to be traded fairly. Intellect, skills and qualification should not know borders. They should be be traded equally and fairly around the globe just like the coffee beans.
