Intellectual Property in the Uruguay Round- Negotiating Strategies of the Western Industrialized Countries

The purpose of this article is not simply to add just another opinion to the debate on international IP protection. Nor does it aim to rally blind support for the position of the Western industrialized countries. Rather, this report attempts to present an objective analysis of all the important arguments of the developed and developing countries, and to evaluate in like manner all major aspects of traditional IP protection and potential regulation in GATT.
