This process has effects on the environment, on culture, on political systems, on economic development and prosperity, and on human physical well-being in societies around the world Facets of Globalization: Facets of Globalization Economies around the globe are more interconnected to each other than ever before (International Trade, FDI, Capital Market Flows) Information and money flow more quickly than ever Goods and services produced in one part of the world are increasingly available in all parts of the world Facet of Globalization Contd...: Facet of Globalization Contd... International travel and migration is more frequent International communication is commonplace (Telegraph, Telephone, Radio, TV, Internet) UN and other Intergovernmental Organizations (WTO and WIPO) Businesses, social activists, labor organizers, journalists, academics, and many others work on a global stage International Trade: International Trade Among rich or developed countries the share of international trade in total output (exports plus imports of goods relative to GDP) rose from 27 to 39 percent between 1987 and 1997. For developing countries it rose from 10 to 17 percent Foreign Direct Investment: Foreign Direct Investment Overall world FDI flows more than tripled between 1988 and 1998, from US$192 billion to US$610 billion, and the share of FDI to GDP is generally rising in both developed and developing countries. Developing countries received about a quarter of world FDI inflows in 1988-98 on average, though the share fluctuated quite a bit from year to year. This is now the largest form of private capital inflow to developing countries Reminders: Reminders Globalization is not new, though. For thousands of years, people — and, later, corporations — have been buying from and selling to each other in lands at great distances, such as through the famed Silk Road across Central Asia that connected China and Europe during the Middle Ages The extent to which different countries participate in globalization is not uniform Reminders Continued: Reminders Continued Pace of economic globalization accelerated in 1980s and 1990s, as governments reduced policy barriers that hampered international trade and investment Distinguishing this current wave of globalization from earlier ones, author Thomas Friedman has said that today globalization is “farther, faster, cheaper, and deeper.” Capitalism or the Market Economy Trade and Globalization: Trade and Globalization Since 1950, volume of world trade increased by twenty-fold; from $320 billion to $6.8 trillion Increase in the trade of manufactured goods exceeds the increase in the rate of the production of these goods by three times As a result, consumers around the world now enjoy a broader selection of products than ever before Introduction to WIPO: Introduction to WIPO UN Specialized Agency Headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland 935 employees from 95 countries Administers 23 International Treaties Global Protection Systems (PCT, Madrid, Hague) Technical Assistance/Development Agenda Dispute Resolution Services (WIPO Arbitration and Mediation Center) Decisions by: GA, CC, WIPO Conference WIPO Contd...: WIPO Contd...

Unitary patent Grants by Regional Patent Offices First-to-file Provisional Applications One-year Grace Period English Language for Examination and Enforcement Single Electronic Prior Art Database World Patent Court Knowledge Management, IPRs and Globalization Contd...: Knowledge Management, IPRs and Globalization Contd... Trilateral Initiatives between Europe, Japan and the U.S., based on the “Kyoto Action Plan” USPTO's initiative to convene an "exploratory" meeting on 3-4 February 2005 "to discuss the current state of substantive patent law harmonization and possible approaches for moving harmonization forward" as a result of "talks on substantive patent law harmonization at the WIPO (having) been delayed until May 2005 as a result of disagreement among WIPO member states over the content of a proposed harmonization treaty and the best way to proceed with discussions" Knowledge Management, IPRs and Globalization Contd...: Knowledge Management, IPRs and Globalization Contd... Based on his experience of the European harmonization process, Dr. Van Benthem, a former President of the European Patent Office (EPO), has suggested that harmonization should be effected in a three-step process as follows: 1) classification, databases, searches, 2) procedural aspects, and 3) substantive matters Only after enough momentum has been gained in one-stage should the next stage be entered Knowledge Management, IPRs and Globalization Contd...: Knowledge Management, IPRs and Globalization Contd... An expanded PCT could be a vehicle for a global patent A regional patent system such as the EPC may be a ready mechanism for a global patent, inasmuch as any country can join the EPC Gerald Mossinghoff believes that, with TRIPS in place, a global, universal or world patent will see the light of day “sooner rather than later,” because our knowledge-based era requires full harmonization Knowledge Management, IPRs and Globalization Contd...: Knowledge Management, IPRs and Globalization Contd... Integrated approach to use of IPRs, a seamless web Legal protection of innovation of any kind, especially in high-tech fields, requires the use of more than one IP category, i.e. dual or multiple protection Knowledge Management, IPRs and Globalization Contd...: Knowledge Management, IPRs and Globalization Contd... Especially for high-tech products, trademarks and copyrights can supplement patents, trade secrets and mask works for the products’ technological content. One IP category, often patents, may be the center of gravity and more important than others. Other IPR categories are then supplementary but very valuable to cover additional subject matter, strengthen exclusivity, invoke additional remedies in litigation, standup if a primary IPR becomes invalid and thus provide synergy and optimize legal protection Knowledge Management, IPRs and Globalization Contd...: Knowledge Management, IPRs and Globalization Contd... Patents are but the tips of icebergs in an ocean of trade secrets. Over 90% of all new technology is covered by trade secrets and over 80% of all license and technology transfer agreements cover proprietary know-how, i.e. trade secrets, or constitute hybrid agreements relating to patents and trade secrets. Bob Sherwood, an international IP consultant, calls trade secrets the “work horse of technology transfer” Knowledge Management, IPRs and Globalization Contd...: Knowledge Management, IPRs and Globalization Contd... Trade secrets are the first line defense: they come before patents, go with patents, and follow patents. As a practical matter, licenses under patents without access to associated or collateral know-how are often not enough for commercial use of the patented technology, because patents rarely disclose the ultimate scaled-up commercial embodiments. Hence, data and know-how are immensely important. Knowledge Management, IPRs and Globalization Contd...: Knowledge Management, IPRs and Globalization Contd... In fact, patents and trade secrets are inextricably intertwined, because the bulk of R&D data and results or associated, collateral know-how for any commercially important innovation cannot and need not be included in a patent application but deserves, and requires, protection which trade secrets can provide Human Rights and IPRs: Human Rights and IPRs Panel discussion on Intellectual Property and Human, Geneva, November 9, 1998 http://www.wipo.int/tk/en/activities/1998/humanrights/papers/index.html Masters Program on Human Rights and Intellectual Property Lund Universithttp://www.lu.se/o.o.i.s/1474y The program offers courses leading to advanced knowledge of public international law, international organization, human rights, intellectual property, refugee law, humanitarian law and several related subjects Human Rights and IPRs: Human Rights and IPRs Moral Rights: Attribution/Paternity Integrity Right to Health Right to Food Right to Education Rights of Indigenous Peoples Freedom of Speech Human Rights and IPRs: Human Rights and IPRs How to define the interface of human rights and IPRs?
