Can Trips be used to preserve the protection of all intellectual and property rights that we have created (including all: trademarks, patents, industrial design, integrated circuit design, commercial design, copyright and protection of plant varieties) international? Or does everyone have a different base? Thank you. The integration of intellectual property rights protection into the global trading system, then known as the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT), could not be separated from the role of the United States, which presented proposals for negotiations on aspects of intellectual property rights related to trade. In addition, the European Community has also presented proposals for guidelines and objectives. Against the proposals of these countries, India is one of the countries most vehemently opposed to the idea of including the protection of intellectual property rights. However, after a debate between developing and industrialized countries, the winner is most interested in protecting his works, namely developed countries. The ON TRIPS agreement is not a rule, particularly with regard to the protection of intellectual property rights. The ON TRIPS agreement is part of the WTO agreement signed by its member states, which obliges all its members to adopt rules on intellectual property rights in their respective countries. With respect to your question, we can explain that the TRIPS agreement does not protect intellectual property rights at the international level. In the international field, each area of intellectual property rights has its own international conventions, as they develop over time. In the area of copyright, for example, certain international conventions apply to the signatory country: any country that has signed the above agreement is required to comply with agreed international rules. However, the rules of the international convention are only general rules. For the application of the general rules that have been agreed, the application and regulation will be fully applied to the country that will apply the rule in its national law.
