Dr. Kamil Idris on Globalization and Intellectual Propery

The protection of intellectual property rights is a rising matter as the globalization of digital services is progressing. The interweb is not a fully regulates space, and any accountability is held solely by digital business and their terms of use which are legally binding.

Kamil Idris is the Director-General of the Geneva-based World Intellectual Property Organization or WIPO for short. Kamil Idris commented on the many ways in which globalization has and will continue to affect the right on the intellectual property. Idris also pointed out that the more and more patents have started being submitted from across the world.

At the same time, the regulations on patents enforced by the Intellectual Property Rights are becoming hazier because of the rising rate of privacy issues which had not been taking too much into consideration when those regulations were issued. Professor Kamil Idris added that those should stand a revision every few years as the globalization is changing almost every factor.

In the developing world, a number of countries are lacking training and knowledge about intellectual popery which makes them fall behind. In countries such as the United States of America, the United Kingdom, Germany, France, and so on, that knowledge and training are not evenly distributed. It has been noted that in the U. S. especially there is a huge discrepancy from one company to another while other fluctuate.

According to Professor Kamil Idris, company leaders should invest more time and resource to educate themselves and their employees on the matter of intellectual property. The World Intellectual Property Organization offers affordable programs for that, but from the organization, it was stated that not enough companies make use of that program which causes a rip in integrity considering the staggering growth in the number of new companies that are founded and growing.

The World Intellectual Property Organization will be working with a few institutions who also share the goal of improving the IRP framework and keep up with the rising era of globalization in a steady and secure matter while striving to educate the general public and employers.
