The text is split into three parts discussing and analysing the TRIPS Agreement. Part 1 describes the development of the TRIPS Agreement, Part 2 is an exhaustive commentary on all 79 Articles of the Agreement, and Part 3 reproduces legislation, agreements and decisions that a practitioner might need to understand it.
