Course Description

Much of domestic Intellectual Property law flows from obligations undertaken under international treaties. These treaties have come increasingly to influence the structure and enforcement of domestic law. This course examines the impact of domestic law on the main intellectual property treaties, including: the Berne, Universal and Rome conventions on copyright and neighbouring rights; the Paris convention on patents, trade-marks and designs; the intellectual property and enforcement chapters of NAFTA and the World Trade Organization Agreement of 1994. The movement to amend and expand some of these treaties, and generally to harmonize intellectual property internationally is also examined.
