This was widely considered as a clear improvement on the earlier system. For the first time, this mechanism was also extended to intellectual property rights; this fact was also considered as an important point of progress when compared to the previous system in international intellectual property law. This contribution examines different aspects of the use of the dispute settlement mechanism in intellectual property fields and tries to make an assessment of the expectations held at the time. It then shows the systemic limits and weaknesses of this system, in particular regarding the example of the WTO panel procedure DS160 (on Section 110(5) of the US Copyright Act). Moreover, it analyses a particular problem, namely retaliation by suspension of intellectual property protection, before drawing conclusions on this topic.

This is the first international treaty covering a comprehensive protection of audiovisual performances, which have been largely excluded from protection under the Rome Convention, the TRIPS Agreement and the WPPT. It largely follows the provisions of the WPPT, and includes an article on the transfer of rights from the performer to the film producer, which leaves discretion to Connecting States how (if at all) to regulate this issue. The Treaty will enter into force upon 30 ratifications. This article presents the development and contents of the Treaty by way of a first assessment.
