This concise and detailed Handbook addresses some of the most complex issues raised by the implementation of the TRIPS Agreement globally. Among other themes, the Handbook explores the applicability of GATT jurisprudence for the interpretation of the Agreement's provisions. It also considers key issues relating to the enforcement of intellectual property rights, such as border measures and injunctive relief. Teamed with the first volume - Research Handbook on the Protection of Intellectual Property under WTO Rules - this analysis is supplemented by a thorough review of the most important cases on TRIPS decided under the WTO dispute settlement mechanism. This accessible Handbook will be invaluable not only for academics, policymakers, and professionals in the area of intellectual property, but for all those interested in or working with the intricacies of the WTO system.
