This paper discusses the intellectual property rights in developing countries. It first briefly discusses the intellectual property and related issues, followed by the discussion of the state of intellectual property rights in Pakistan, an exemplary developing country.

From the Paper:

"As technology improves, the current laws about intellectual property and copyright are being challenged. Copying of nearly everything, from sound, to text, to video is made simple with computers, the Internet, scanners, CD burners and other technology. It is worth mentioning that after Defense products, the second largest net export of the United States is entertainment programming (Anonymous, 1989). The U.S. Department of Commerce estimated the worldwide value of pirated music in the 1980s to be $1.2 billion annually (Griffiths, 1999). The International Intellectual Property Alliance estimated Unites States' losses in the recorded music industry due to piracy at $600 million per year in the 1980s and the numbers are certainly higher now (Griffiths, 1999). There is obviously a lot at stake for those who are involved with the music industry as well as all the other industries affected by piracy."
