Description

The ownership of intellectual property is an important concept that very often has international ramifications. This timely book discusses in detail the controversial TRIPS (Trade Related Intellectual Property Rights) Agreement that was a result of the Uruguay Round negotiations. TRIPS aims to strengthen IPRs by checking copying, piracy, illegal imports and other violations. It also seeks better enforcement by strengthening the dispute settlement procedure. While everyone is agreed on the need for protecting IPRs, the areas of disagreement mainly centre around patent protection and the enforcement of rights.

In this comprehensive book, the authors deal with this very topical subject in a simple and easy to follow style. The TRIPS Agreement and its effects are explained in detail with special reference to developing countries. The book also critically examines the provisions of the Agreement article wise as well as the case law on the subject. In addition, the authors have discussed and analyzed numerous pertinent topics that include:

Industrial design
The protection of undisclosed information
Anti-Competitive practices
Indian and other national laws on the subject
The Doha Declaration and further negotiations on TRIPS

REVIEWS

The book is useful reading for lawyers, business leaders and students of international business.
-Business Standard

The authors have discussed ways and means of securing enforcement of rights, special requirements related to border measures to control cross-border movement of goods, and finally, the various procedures for dispute settlement under the WTO framework.
-Indian Management

Rao tries to demystify TRIPS and the regime of copyrights, patents, trademarks and geographical indications. The authors particularly examine the implications of TRIPS for developing countries, which are demanding access to life-saving drugs and the right to evolve their own public policies.
-The Financial Express
