Towards The TRIPS Agreement

The TRIPS Agreement aimed not only at protection of the Intellectual Property rights but their due enforcement as well. The Agreement, thus, sets out minimum standards to be established and also provides for the administrative and civil mechanisms for enforcement. These minimum standards for the enforcement of IPR allow right holders to protect their legitimate interests through civil courts or administrative proceedings. However, considering the innovations in technological fields, increased patent filing, new symbols being created everyday and works requiring copyrights, IPR enforcement needs to be strengthened further.
