..."One can learn a great deal about TIPS and related issues by reading this book. It is well written, well documented, accessible, and concise.."
-Richard Adkisson, New Mexico State University
"This useful book discusses the origin of TRIPS, outlines its content and meaning, and dissects the gray areas and unfinished business, especially in implementation. @source: Foreign Affairs, January/February 2003."
The World Trade Organization has jurisdiction over intellectual property rights - including patents, copyrights and trademarks - on a global scale under the auspices of the TRIPS Agreement (Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights, including Trade in Counterfeit Goods). This agreement has profound implications for the commercial interests of global corporate actors and for access to technology in developing countries. In Globalising Intellectual Property Rights , Matthews looks at various aspects of the TRIPs agreement: agenda-setting, legal interpretation, implementation, enforcement and revision - from the viewpoint of global business interests and developing countries. It is argued that the Agreement was largely the result of an initiative by multinational companies who sought to protect their own intellectual property through international law, and, furthermore, that it is these multinational companies who are now its main guardians. The book concludes that the history of the TRIPS Agreement and the role of business is a clear example of governance by non-state actors on a global scale. This book will be of interest to students and researchers in the fields of international relations, intellectual property law, international economic law and development studies.
