Abstract

In November 2020, the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) and its five neighbors (Australia, China, Japan, New Zealand and South Korea) signed the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) Agreement. The Agreement entered into force on January 1, 2022. Chapter 11, which is devoted to intellectual property, contains 14 sections: (A) general provisions and basic principles; (B) copyright and related rights; (C) trademarks; (D) geographical indications; (E) patents; (F) industrial designs; (G) genetic resources, traditional knowledge and folklore; (H) unfair competition; (I) country names; (J) enforcement of intellectual property rights; (K) cooperation and consultation; (L) transparency; (M) transition periods and technical assistance; and (N) procedural matters. This short essay provides an overview of the intellectual property provisions in the RCEP Agreement.
