Abstract: Abstract 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.
