Therefore, in light of your questions, we can clarify that the TRIPS agreement does not protect intellectual property rights at the international level. In the international field, each area of intellectual property rights has its own international conventions, as they develop over time. In the area of copyright, for example, some international conventions applying to the signatory country are: The membership agreement is not a specific rule for the protection of intellectual property rights. The ON TRIPS agreement is part of the WTO agreement signed by its member states, which obliges all Member States to adopt rules on intellectual property rights in their respective countries. Can TRIPS be used to preserve the protection of all intellectual property rights and rights that we have created (for all: brand, patent, industrial design, integrated circuit design, trade secrets, copyright and protection of plant varieties)? Or does everyone have another base? Thank you. The integration of intellectual property protection into the global trading system, then known as the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT), was inextricably linked to the role of the United States, which proposed negotiating aspects of intellectual property rights related to trade. In addition, the European Community also proposes guidelines and objectives. India is one of the countries opposed to the proposals of these countries which strongly oppose the idea of including the protection of intellectual property rights. However, after a debate between developing and industrialized countries, the winner is most interested in protecting his works, namely developed countries. The Uruguay Round led the participating countries to reach an agreement on international trade.
At the meeting, a multilateral agreement called the WTO agreement was reached. The participating countries signed the final act on the outcome of the Uruguay Round multilateral trade negotiations in 1994 in Marrakesh, Morocco.
