It has been operating by conducting studies and discussion of existing IP questions among its members worldwide to achieve harmonised resolutions on international basis. The questions discussed this year included: i) Inventorship of multinational inventions; ii) Taking unfair advantage of trademarks, parasitism and free riding; iii) Exceptions and limitations to copyright protection for libraries, archives and educational and research institutions; and iv) Trade secrets: overlap with restraint of trade, aspects of enforcement.
