Abstract

This chapter reviews the copyright law-specific contributions of TRIPS, including its substantive copyright law provisions and the interpretations that WTO panel reports have provided for some of the provisions. The chapter further explores how copyright law has developed outside of TRIPS; it focuses on international copyright law negotiations that resulted in the conclusion of WIPO treaties and on other international negotiations that led to the conclusion of numerous free trade agreements. Finally, the chapter offers an outlook on the current copyright law landscape; it presents the structural and substantive issues that have arisen in the landscape since the TRIPS negotiations and suggests the paths that international copyright law might take in the future.
