Abstract

A new international convention on the law applicable to IPRs has become a necessity dictated by the international nature of IPRs and their rapid spread. The important role of existing IPR conventions and academic proposals is undeniable; however, they are not adequate and there is still a need for a new convention to cover this issue.

Keywords: Intellectual property, international convention, law applicable, conflict of laws, substantive rules, choice-of-law rules, lex protectionis, lex originis, academic proposals.
