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.

'..provides much valuable material to read and consider..a comprehensive and accessible analysis of TRIPs, taking in (i) examination of the rights and duties of WTO members in implementing it, (ii) a forward-looking analysis of the developments in digital copyright as well as (iii) discussion of TRIPs' crucial enforcement provisionsa well-written and helpfully-referenced work..' Another thing that appeals..is the author's way of reading TRIPs in the light of the rules of interpretation in the Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties - a provision that rarely gets a mention in intellectual property circles, at least where common law interpretational techniques hold sway. ..congratulations to the author on putting together a well-written and helpfully referenced work - and to the publishers for keeping the price tag below the ..
