Intellectual Property Protection Strategies in High-developed Countries
Purpose: There has always been an international dimension to debates on intellectual property rights protection. High-developed countries implemented own protection standards which became common but not globally respected. Nowadays they experience problems connected with their violation. Design/methodology/approach: The subject matter and main aims of the paper require detailed literature studies and deep analysis and comparison of opinions presented by scholars representing both sides of the TRIPS negotiation process. It is necessary to present the opinions of well-known worldwide organizations and researchers from developed and developing countries. Findings: The paper presents the international legal consensus related to the protection of intellectual property rights and signals the main problems which haven't been solved. It also presents the main tools used by developed countries to promote their global strategy of intellectual property rights protection. Originality/value: The paper shows and explains the main problems faced by high-developed countries and discusses the different opinions. (original abstract)
