course description

This seminar examines the international intellectual property system and its implications for international trade.  It reviews key multilateral regimes, including TRIPs, NAFTA, and the EC Treaty, as well as the basic structure of the dispute settlement procedure of the World Trade Organization.  The seminar also explores whether harmonization of intellectual property systems among countries of different traditions and levels of economic development is justified, and the forums and processes through which such harmonization should be undertaken.
