Technological change has transformed the ways knowledge is developed and shared internationally. Accordingly, in the quarter-century since the WTO was established, and since its Agreement on Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights came into force, both the knowledge dimension of trade and the functioning of the IP system have been radically transformed. The need to understand and respond to this change has placed knowledge at the centre of policy debates about economic and social development. Recognizing the need for modern analytical tools to support policymakers and analysts, this publication draws together contributions from a diverse range of scholars and analysts. Together, they offer a fresh understanding of what it means to trade in knowledge in today's technological and commercial environment. The publication offers insights into the prospects for knowledge-based development and ideas for updated systems of governance that promote the creation and sharing of the benefits of knowledge.

This book provides a comprehensive analysis of the latest legal, economic, political and social research and advanced current thinking on the relationship between intellectual property and trade and development. It starts with coverage of the theoretical basis of the connections between intellectual property, trade and development. It presents options as to how intellectual property rules can be incorporated in the local legal framework and how the positive impact of intellectual property standards can be maximized while minimizing welfare costs. It includes implementation strategies for TRIPS and TRIPS Plus norms, and also the use of measures outside the traditional scope of intellectual property norms. These measures range from education to the establishment or enhancement of a solid industrial and research base, to fighting pandemics such as HIV/AIDS. Possible economic strategies and proposals are also offered on the protection of traditional knowledge and indigenous resources.

International policies toward protecting intellectual property rights have seen profound changes over the past two decades. Rules on how to protect patents, copyright, trademarks and other forms of intellectual property have become a standard component of international trade agreements. Most significantly, during the Uruguay Round of multilateral trade negotiations (1986-94), members of what is today the World Trade Organization (WTO) concluded the Agreement on Trade Related Intellectual Property Rights (TRIPS), which sets out minimum standards of protection that most of the world's economies have to respect. How will developing countries fare in this new international environment? Intellectual Property and Development brings together empirical research that assesses the effects of changing intellectual property regimes on various measures of economic and social performance - ranging from international trade, foreign investment and competition, to innovation and access to new technologies. The studies presented point to an important development dimension to the protection of intellectual property. But a one-size fits all approach to intellectual property is unlikely to work. There is need to adjust intellectual property norms to domestic needs, taking into account developing countries' capacity to innovate, technological needs, and institutional capabilities. In addition, governments need to consider a range of complementary policies to maximize the benefits and reduce the costs of reformed intellectual property regulations. This book will be of interest to students and scholars of international law, particularly in the area of intellectual property rights, international trade, and public policy.

Over the course of history, different legal instruments for protecting intellectual property have emerged. These instruments differ in their subject matter, extent of protection, and field of application, reflecting society's objective to balance the interests of creators and consumers for different types of intellectual works. These legal instruments are just one of the pieces that form a national system of intellectual property protection. Also crucial to the system's overall effectiveness are the institutions administering these instruments, the mechanisms available for enforcing IPRs, and the rules regarding the treatment of non-nationals. To address some of the issues concerning IPRs, this paper defines what they are and attempts to evaluate the relationship between the protection of intellectual property and economic activity in developing countries. It also summarizes the economic effects of IPRs in terms of creation and diffusion of knowledge and information; and market structure and prices. Furthermore, it discusses the reformation of IPRs regimes and makes recommendations for their administration and enforcement. This paper consolidates some of the research from the 'World Development Report 1998/1999: Knowledge for Development' and some contributions made at an Internet-moderated conference conducted by the Bank's TechNet program. It will be of interest to governments, investors, and international organizations.

The importance of intellectual property rights in industrialized countries, as well as in emerging economies, has been increasing considerably over the past two decades. An important event in the course of this development was the Agreement on Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights (TRIPS). Especially regarding the economic development of the People's Republic of China (PRC), intellectual property rights have attracted the attention of scientists and decision-makers in business and public policy. While China meets the basic legal requirements of a well-developed system for the application and examination of intellectual property rights, the enforcement of these rights still proves to be a major issue. Academic research regarding China's IPR system is still sparse. Moreover, there are considerable gaps in the literature. In previous academic studies, the examination process at the Chinese State Intellectual Property Office (SIPO) has not been researched thoroughly. Moreover, the fundamental relationship between international trade flows, foreign direct investment and the design of the patent system in the People's Republic is in need of more detailed analysis. In his dissertation, Johannes Liegsalz tackles three specific questions immediately related to this nexus. He applies multivariate econometric methods to different data sets which were assembled specifically for the purpose of this thesis. The first chapter of the thesis analyzes the duration of the examination process for patent applications at the SIPO.

Sherwood examines the historical evolution of intellectual property as a legal and commercial institution. He introduces the five basic categories of protection--patents, copyright, trade secrets, trademarks, and mask works--and discusses how intellectual property protection works in practice. He examines the influence of economic theory on the study of intellectual property in relation to economic growth in developing countries; the impact of intellectual property protection on the economic development process in Brazil and Mexico; and the impact of weak intellectual property protection on research activity at traditional technology source points, on technology intermediation, and on efforts to provide financial support for research. He concludes with propositions to support national policies of weak protection for intellectual property rights, with examples of Japan and Korea. ISBN 0-8133-8019-7: $28.50.

This book comprises chapters by leading international authors analysing the interface between intellectual property and foreign direct investment, development, and free trade. The authors search for a balance between the conflicting interests that inherently coexist in intellectual property law. The chapters dig deep into the subjects and notions that have become central in international intellectual property legal developments: i) flexibility, public interest and policy-space for implementation; ii) interfaces between the intellectual property regime and other legal regimes; and iii) the development of international intellectual property law and its influence on national legal orders, which includes the implementation of intellectual property undertakings.
