Abstract

One way to jumpstart WTO talks is to rethink how we protect intellectual property. Many analysts now fear the current approach hampers technological progress and may lead to information oligopolies. This article presents a grand bargain on IPR to help stimulate global development.

Keywords: WTO, intellectual property, IPR, trade, development
