Chapter Summary

The origins of international design protection mainly lie in Arts 1.2, 5 quinquies Paris Convention (PC) and in the provisions of the Berne Convention (BC), the Universal Copyright Convention (UCC) and the Hague Agreement Concerning the International Deposit of Industrial Designs. The European, Japanese and US position was, to a great extent, influenced by the Intellectual Property Committee (IPC) set up by the US Advisory Committee on Trade and Policy Negotiations in 1986 to provide privately operated and funded input to the negotiations. The IPC presented a "Statement of Views of European, Japanese and United States Business Communities" to government negotiators as the minimum standards for an acceptable Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property (TRIPS) Agreement.
