Dr. Kamil Idris: Global Copyright Management

Dr. Kamil Idris is part of the World Intellectual Property Organization, an organization that is based in Geneva. Dr. Kamil Idris is an expert on intellectual property rights and the manners in which companies can protect their intellectual properties.

Dr. Kamil Idris has recently given an interview on the way that globalization has influenced how companies do business across borders. Globalization has increased the rate at which companies outsource contract manufacturing on their products and the management of their supply chains. He believes that intellectual property is an important tool that is relevant to all countries. Intellectual property has a strong relation to the overall economic context in which knowledge and ideas are an important power behind economic growth for nations.

The national objectives of a country can differ and depending on the public policies that the nation has implemented it can change the manner in which intellectual property is managed. Whenever a nation displays a commitment to intellectual property development and intellectual property rights, it generally encourages innovation and creativity within the nation.

Globalization has caused some issues with intellectual properties primarily in the form of piracy and counterfeiting. This has caused an increased need to devote resources and time to the training on intellectual property and the capacity for intellectual property management. The increased level of communication around the world had significantly escalated the rate of piracy. Due to the increased connectivity in many cases, intellectual properties can be distributed very easily with or without the authorization of the copyright holder.

The recent WIPO Copyright Treaty As Well as the WIPO Phonograms and Performances Treaty have been one of the most significant steps forward in creating an international framework for the management of copyrights. What these have aimed to do is provide protection for the copyright holders at a minimum level internationally in the new digital era. The Advisory Committee on Enforcement of the WIPO will be one of the more important pieces of this new enforcement policy. Not only does it provide legislative advice but it also provides enforcement issues training as well as seminars for individuals to learn about international copyright protection.
