TRIPS Agreement: Changing the face of IP trade and policy-making
Did you know?
The establishment of the WTO’s TRIPS
(trade-related aspects of intellectual property
rights) Agreement in 1995 changed the face of
international intellectual property (IP) law and
policy-making. TRIPS negotiators recognized
that shortcomings and inconsistencies in
IP protection can distort trade and impede
its benefits. The TRIPS Agreement helps
ease trade tensions about IP issues while
leaving WTO members ample space to pursue
diverse domestic policies.
