A Working Paper on the Concept of IP

01 Dec 1999

Mr. Talal Abu-Ghazaleh, Chairman of AGIP and the Arab Society for the Protection of Intellectual Property (ASPIP) called for transforming intellectual property concept from protection to an incentive in economic and social development. He added that the most important aspect of the intellectual property system lies in its service to society and man and as incentive to creativity and development.
Mr. Abu-Ghazaleh went on to say that if we are to visualize the map of the next century technology, we will see that we will reach zero cost for computers and telecommunication lines within twenty years. The world will actually be an information globe.
Mr. Abu-Ghazaleh made those remarks during the second round of meetings of the Advisory Board Council which includes 16 members representing intellectual property organizations and committees from around the world. Mr. Abu-Ghazaleh had been commissioned to prepare a working paper including renewing the objectives of the intellectual property system as well as its role in serving the economy and society.
