This chapter analyzes international harmonization of intellectual property rights, tracing its history from the Paris (1883) and Berne Conventions (1886) to the WIPO (World Intellectual Property Organization) and the TRIPS Agreement of the WTO. The contents of the TRIPS Agreement and its implementation through the WTO dispute settlement mechanism are detailed. The chapter further shows how concerns triggered by the TRIPS Agreement in developing countries over negative effects in securing public health resulted in modification of the Agreement in 2001.

Keywords:   patent, copyright, Paris Convention, Berne Convention, TRIPS Agreement, WIPO (World Intellectual Property Organization), TRIPS and public health
