Trade Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights: A Commentary on the TRIPS Agreement (Oxford Commentaries on International Law) (Hardcover)
The TRIPS Agreement which was adopted in 1994 is the most comprehensive and influential international treaty on intellectual property rights. It brings intellectual property rules into the framework of the World Trade Organization, and requires massive changes in national laws, particularly in developing countries. This volume provides a detailed legal analysis of the provisions of the TRIPS Agreement, as well as the jurisprudence already developed in the context of the World Trade Organization.
