Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses on the history and emergence of IP regimes both nationally and internationally. It introduces the debates that surround the implementation of intellectual property in different jurisdictions and the way that these issues affect relationships between states. It locates the importance of the rise in products that have a high IP content within world trade in general, and for the key developing nations of China and India in particular. The chapter shows that there are increasing trends for private sector organisations to play a greater role in determining the shape of IP regime developments as well as in influencing the outcomes of international negotiations. The chapter concludes with an overview of recent initiatives in IP centric communities, including the rise of patent exchanges between companies as a sequitur from a more defensive IP strategy.
