    Abstract

    The World Trade Organisation Agreement on Trade Related Intellectual Property Rights (TRIPS) has created a new world legal order concerning intellectual property as part of world trade. The purpose of the paper is to stimulate further debate on intellectual property criteria and standards and on improvements for restructuring the TRIPS legal environment, necessary to more equitably balance the needs of developed and developing countries and to promote development, as an alternative to the so called “TRIPS plus” approach which seeks bilateral tightening of Intellectual Property provisions.
