Much of domestic law that relates to innovation flows from obligations undertaken under international treaties. These treaties have increasingly come to influence the structure and enforcement of domestic law, in addition to trading that involves creations of the intellect. This unit examines the impact on domestic law related to innovation, its promotion and protection, from the main intellectual property treaties, and the recent trend to greater harmonisation of intellectual property rights internationally. The unit studies the perceived advantages and disadvantages of these treaties' initiatives to developed and developing states, and presents alternative approaches from a global perspective.
