The New World Trade Organization Agreements: Globalizing Law Through Services and Intellectual Property (Cambridge Studies in Law and Society)

ISBN: 0521773555;
Издательство: Cambridge University Press

This insightful book assesses the impact of the WTO, and the globalization of law, through two new multilateral agreements--the General Agreement on Trade in Services (GATS) and the Agreement on Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property (TRIPs). It explains how these agreements push trade policies "behind the border," mediating conflicts between contrasting legalities. Detailed case studies address topics of global significance: competition between legal services, ownership claims to the genetic codes, and access to on-line media.
