The chapter considers the role of the World Trade Organization’s Appellate Body as a judicial body. It first looks at the arguments favoring specialized courts versus general ones, and courts versus legislative bodies. It then considers whether the Appellate Body can be compared to a domestic court, and if so, whether it can be compared to a common law court, and whether it is more similar to a general or specialized court. Three cases involving the Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights (TRIPS) Agreement are discussed. The chapter ends with a few concluding thoughts.

(Re)structuring Copyright

A Comprehensive Path to International Copyright Reform

Daniel J. Gervais

In this bold and persuasive work Daniel Gervais, one of the world’s leading thinkers on the subject of intellectual property, argues that the international copyright system is in need of a root and branch rethink. As the Internet alters the world in which copyright operates beyond all recognition, a world increasingly defined by the might of online intermediaries and spawning a generation who are simultaneously authors, users and re-users of creative works, the structure of copyright in its current form is inadequate and unfit for purpose. This ambitious and far-reaching book sets out to diagnose in some detail the problems faced by copyright, before eloquently mapping out a path for comprehensive and structured reform. It contributes a reasoned and novel voice to a debate that is all too often driven by ignorance and partisan self-interest.
