Alan Story: history of TRIPs

“A small number of US companies,
which were established players in the knowledge game (see Chapter 3),
captured the US trade-agenda setting process and then, in partnership with
European and Japanese multinationals, drafted intellectual property
principles that became the blueprint for TRIPS (see Chapters 8 and 9). The
resistance of developing countries was crushed through trade power (see Chapter 6).”
