Abstract:
This thesis portfolio outlines the manner in which intellectual property rights (IPR) policies form, evolve, and are diffused into the international regime. It advances that the formation and evolution of IPR policies occur largely as a function of the economy. This process is evident both domestically and internationally, with a major policy division occurring between industrialized and developing states. This portfolio juxtaposes the evolution of the patent system in the United States of America with increases in economic activity from the Colonial period until 1930. Turning towards the international sphere, this thesis portfolio explicitly details the international IPR policy division in the pharmaceutical sector. The broad nature of IPR has seen its expansion into new issue-areas, ultimately resulting in a regime complex. The nature of the IPR regime complex allows states to engage in a variety of political strategies in order to diffuse their policy preferences into the international sphere. This thesis examines these strategies and their impact within the international IPR regime complex.
