Patent and Trade Disparities in Developing Countries

Oxford University Press

This chapter studies the time before the World Trade Organization (WTO) was established in order to show how the patent polices of that time contributed to the reaching of the various criteria used as a measure of development. It shows how patents were accepted and used throughout early decades, and identifies the patent policies created to attain development, as well as the events that led to the present patent regime. Several aspects of the early development of patent regimes that can help shed light on the context of intellectual property (IP) issues in the trade regime are also discussed.

Keywords:   patent policies, World Trade Organization, development, patents, patent regime, intellectual property, trade regime
