Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses on the coordination of international organizations in the field of intellectual property law, as it is one of the few fields of international law that is attended to by a large amount and variety of international organizations, be they on the universal or the regional level, be they technical or global organizations. It is recognized that there are two general, interrelated reasons for the multiplication of international organizations, namely globalization and interdependence. The co-existence of international organizations leads to overlapping activities and conflicting competences. From the foregoing, one can infer that the specific legal problems arising out of the co-existence of international organizations in the field of intellectual property law are related to the coordination of their overlapping activities. Duplication of existing international organizations should certainly be avoided, at least as long as existing institutions work efficiently.

Keywords: global organizations; intellectual property law; international organizations; overlapping activities
