About The Book

The publication entitled Compendium on Laws and Policies on IPT for NAM and Other Developing Countries brought out by the Centre for Science & Technology of the Non-Aligned and Other Developing Countries (NAM S&T Centre) is largely based on the presentations made during and International Conference on “Implications of New IPR Regime under the TRIPS for Developing Countries” held at New Delhi, India during May 1999. Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) is the protection of research results in a knowledge-based industry prior to its public distribution. The extent of protection and enforcement of these rights vary widely around the developing countries. It is extremely difficult to generalize the implications of the TRIPS agreement in these countries because such implications vary with differences existing between the IPR laws of a particular country and the standards of the agreement, the extent of development in different sectors, the per capita income, and the structure of the supply. These differences become a source of tension in international trade and economic relations. The new internationally agreed IPR regimes under TRIPS (Trade-Related Aspects of IPR) provide a way to introduce more order and predictability in trade and for disputes to be settled more systematically. The volume contains contributions from renowned experts from various developing countries. It illustrates will the relevant laws and policies existing in the participant countries, including Bangladesh, Camernoon, Chile, Egypt, India, Indonesia, Kyrgyzstan, Lebanon, Malawi, Malaysia, Mongolia, Nepal, Pakistan, Saint Lucia, Tanzania, Trinidad & Tobago, Ukraine, Zambia and Zimbabwe. The book would be useful to IPR professionals and S&T persons as a reference material on various IPR related issues with particular reference to the developing countries.
