Spanish Abstract: Tratándose de un marco regulatorio para mercados de innovación, el sistema de patentes debe ser adaptado tanto al proceso de innovación, al cual se supone debe servir, así como al ambiente de com-petencia, dentro del cual debe operar. A fin de asegurar un funcionamiento eficiente del sistema de patentes como herramienta de políticas para la innovación, los derechos de patente deben ser definidos, justificados y reconsiderados en forma continua en cuanto a los beneficios y costos socioeconómicos que genera.

Los Estados soberanos deben conservar la facultad de adoptar el sistema de patentes que mejor se adapte tanto a sus capacidades tecnológicas como sus necesidades y prioridades sociales, culturales y económicas, con la única condición de que el ejercicio de dicho criterio permanezca dentro de los lími-tes del derecho internacional. Teniendo en cuenta los principios consuetudinarios de interpretación del derecho internacional, esta Declaración buscar arrojar luz sobre dichos límites. El objetivo es brindar claridad con respecto al espacio de políticas que el “Acuerdo sobre los Aspectos de los Derechos de Propiedad Intelectual relacionados con el Comercio” (Acuerdo sobre los ADPIC) ofrece a los legisla-dores nacionales y a las autoridades judiciales con respecto a la implementación y administración del sistema de patentes.

English Abstract: As a framework regulation for innovation markets, the patent system needs to be tailored to the innovation process, which it is supposed to serve, and to the competitive environment, within which it must operate. In order to ensure an efficient functionality of the patent system as an innovation policy tool, patent rights ought to be defined, justified and continually reconsidered by reference to their socio-economic benefits and costs.

Sovereign states should retain the discretion to adopt a patent system that best suits their technological capabilities as well as their social, cultural and economic needs and priorities, with the proviso that the exercise of such discretion must remain within the boundaries of international law. Taking into account the customary principles of interpretation of international law, this Declaration seeks to shed light on these boundaries. The purpose is to clarify the policy space that the ‘Agreement on Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights’ (TRIPS Agreement) leaves to national legislators and judicial authorities with regard to the implementation and administration of their patent systems.
