The TRIPS agreement provides obligatory substantive minimum standards and enforcement
procedures and remedies .Hence, members and acceding sates are required to make their
intellectual property legislations compatible with the TRIPS minimum standard of protection.
Focusing on patent, this paper seeks to assess the compatibility of the Ethiopian patent regime
with the TRIPS minimum standard of protection. Mostly, the assessment focused on issues
which relate with the substance of patent. To this effect, relevant legislations and administrative
and court practice are assessed in light of the TRIPS minimum standards of protection.
Additionally, this paper tries to sort out the way outs, to minimize or alleviate the negative
impact of the TRIPS agreement, in the upcoming Ethiopian WTO accession.|
