Description of the Online Subject - Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights.

The Intellectual creations are protected through the intellectual property rights. These might be:

  1. Copyright and related rights (sheet music, books, software...)
  2. Industrial property

The industrial property include: trademarks, patents, trade secrets, designs, geographical indications, website domains, database protection...

The main objective of the intellectual property rights is to protect the author, consumers and promote a fair competition in addition to favouring the innovation (inventions). The Intellectual property rights also allow negotiating a payment for use to the owner of the right.

In foreign trade, the intellectual property rights ensure the transfer of technology (licenses, investments abroad, joint-ventures...)

According to the WTO “the protection of intellectual property must contribute to the technical innovation and technology transfer”

The importance of the Agreement on Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights (TRIPS) of the World Trade Organisation (WTO) lies in the fact that it allows the incorporation of a whole series of regulations related to the intellectual property in the multilateral trading system.

The TRIPS agreement seeks to standardize the industrial property rights in the member countries of the World Trade Organisation (WTO) through the development of international standards of common use.

These minimum agreements on the protection of the intellectual property rights are usually improved and extended in the free trade agreements.

The Agreement on Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights (TRIPS) also defines the mechanisms for resolving the differences between countries.

The pillars of the Agreement on Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights (TRIPS):

  1. National treatment
  2. Most favored nation treatment (MFN)
  3. Balanced protection

The Paris Convention for Protection of Industrial Property, signed in 1883, includes the protection of utility models, trademarks, trade names, patents, industrial models, unfair competition and geographical indications.
