Introduction into the seminar: By establishing minimum requirements of protection for intellectual property rights the TRIPS Agreement has changed the landscape of IP worldwide. The notion of IP standards has become a commonly accepted concept (not to say a standard) in the legal doctrine. The minimum requirements provided in TRIPS do not lead however to a full standardization – they are divergent in many aspects. It is thus the aim of the seminar to present and discuss chosen aspects of both standards and lack of standards in the protection of IP.

How are the TRIPS minimum requirements regulated in particular fields of IP? Are the mandated standards always implemented into national laws? What aspects of intellectual property are left to the discretion of national or regional authorities and where the standardization is the most far-reaching? Finally, what standardization instruments have been used in IP since TRIPS? These and other questions will inspire our discussion.

We would like to invite academics, PhD candidates, students and practitioners interested in the law of intellectual property to participate in our seminar.

Seminar admission is free of charge.
