Summary:
The calibration effort goes beyond what TRIPS was thought to be about - namely, standardising IP, Gervais said. Developing nations now say they want national policies to close the gap between IP law and innovation. The challenge is not to implement TRIPS mechanically in order to stay out of trouble but as part of a national innovation strategy. At the same time, the West is also recalibrating IP, although in a different way, by questioning patent law excesses, software patents and the US Digital Millennium Copyright Act (which strengthened rightsholders positions).
