Type of Presentation:
The protection of intellectual property rights (IPRs) has changed over the last two decades from an obscure national regulaiton issue to a hotly debated global issue. It's a very complex issue to summarize, as there are quite a few strands. These strands should give a sense of the urgency of moving to global solutions fpr this complex issue of IPRs. It is too central and to complex to be left under diverging national laws.
