The Agreement on Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights (TRIPS) is the most far-reaching and comprehensive legal regime ever concluded at the multilateral level in the area of intellectual property rights (IPR). Compared to prior IPR conventions, TRIPS constitutes a major qualitative leap which radically modifies not only the context in which IPR are considered internationally, but also their substantive content and the methods for their enforcement and dispute settlement. This much-welcomed treatise, now in its third edition, thoroughly updates its comprehensive analysis of the substantive provisions of the Agreement and their actual interpretation and application in different jurisdictions, with new material on the burgeoning case law and on major changes in plant variety protection.



As in previous editions, the book may be relied upon for in-depth clarification of such matters as the following:

·         standards established under the agreement;

·         enforcement measures;

·         social and legal issues;

·         legal and policy possibilities offered;

·         legislative latitude allowed to WTO Member States;

·         incorporation of TRIPS into domestic law;

·         protection of integrated circuit design;

·         protection of innovation and R&D for diseases that disproportionately affect developing countries;

·         challenges raised by ongoing technological changes;

·         access to medicines;

·         protection of confidential (undisclosed) information; and

·         interface between competition law and intellectual property protection.



With fifteen chapters contributed by a distinguished panel of experts representing diverse parties — international organisations, legal practice, government policy, and academia — the third edition offers an incomparable framework for understanding the background, principles, and complex provisions of the TRIPS Agreement.



Thoroughly revised and updated, the third edition will be of great value to all professionals and business people concerned with international trade. It stimulates further discussion and analysis in this area of growing importance to international law and international economic relations, particularly regarding the possibilities offered by the Agreement and the loose ends that may need consideration in the future at the national or international level
