This article compares patentability provisions under the recently-concluded U.S. - Central American Free Trade Agreement (CAFTA) with those of Article 27 of the Agreement on Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights (TRIPs).
While discussions stagnate at the WTO over access to medicines, protection of indigenous knowledge and technology transfer, the United States and other developed countries multiply bilateral ’TRIPs-plus’ treaties with developing countries. This article compares patentability provisions under the recently-concluded U.S. - Central American Free Trade Agreement (CAFTA) with those of Article 27 of the Agreement on Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights (TRIPs). A closer look at the differences between the CAFTA and the TRIPs Agreement gives a good indication of the possible evolution of international IP law and of the additional weight bilateral negotiations confer to the United States when compared to multilateral approaches.
