Abstract

Developing countries have traditionally been antagonistic to the introduction of strengthened Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) systems. This is the case in spite of the obvious fact that virtually all Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) market economies have "strong" IPR systems, and that they have full "reciprocity" in recognizing the IPRs of other OECD countries. That is, each OECD country offers "national treatment" to inventors from other OECD countries. Additionally, each of these countries has actually strengthened IPR implementation and scope, primarily through "case law" over recent decades.
