Intellectual Property Policy, Law and Administration in Africa: Exploring Continental and Sub-regional Co-operation by Caroline B. Ncube

This book examines the harmonisation of Intellectual Property (IP) policy, law and administration in Africa.

Two recent developments have brought this topic to the fore. The first is the escalation of long-standing efforts to establish a Pan-African Intellectual Property Organisation (PAIPO), a continental initiative. The second is the current sub-regional attempt to operationalise the IP provisions of the Southern African Development Community (SADC)'s Protocol on Trade (articles 9b and 24) and its Protocol on Science, Technology and Innovation (article 2m).

Intellectual Property Policy, Law and Administration in Africa discusses the viability of such initiatives with particular reference to the current socio-economic status of Africa's nations. With a view to contributing to future developments in Africa at both a continental and sub-regional level, the author considers this issue through the lens of advancing the public interest in IP. Ncube argues that harmonisation initiatives ought to be crafted in a way that is supportive of the development aspirations of African states. Consequently, she urges due consideration of individual states' unique conditions and aspirations in any harmonisation venture, a necessity outlined in article 7 of the Agreement on Trade Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights.

This book will be of great relevance to scholars and policy makers with an interest in IP law and African law in general.
