This book contains an in-depth analysis of the principles and material provisions and application of the ON TRIPS Agreement, which is currently the main international treaty on intellectual property. It examines the legal context in which the agreement was negotiated, the objectives of its supporters and the nature of the commitments it has made to the members of the World Trade Organization. In particular, it examines the minimum standards to be implemented with respect to patents, trademarks, industrial designs, geographical indications, copyrights and neighbouring rights, integrated circuits, trade secrets and test data for pharmaceuticals and agrochemicals.
