The "Agreement on Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights" of 1994 constitutes a milestone in the international protection of these rights and the most far-reaching agreement to follow upon the venerable Paris and Berne Conventions. Under the aegis of the newly established World Trade Organization, international intellectual property protection has for the first time been linked to trade policy issues. The TRIPs Agreement also obliges its Members as regards the enforcement of rights and dispute settlement. This volume in the IIC Studies series undertakes a comprehensive analysis of all the fields of industrial and intellectual property law regulated and affected by TRIPs. It is an indispensable tool for lawyers, practitioners and scholars in this area.
