The malaria and AIDS epidemics placed a special strain on the TRIPS Agreement. Drugs that are effective against these diseases have been developed and manufactured in the West. However, their market prices are often far more than local public health budgets can afford. Several developing countries responded by refusing to grant patent protection on the needed pharmaceuticals. They were, in effect, inviting local companies to manufacture pirated copies. In 2001, the WTO Trade Negotiation Committee addressed this problem with the development of the Doha Declaration on the TRIPS Agreement and Public Health (World Trade Organization, 2001).
There is a general exception for any measure adopted by a contracting party to protect public morals, protect human, animal or plant life or health, related to the importation of gold or silver, or that is related to the conservation of exhaustible natural resources (GATT, Article XX). GATT also authorizes the contracting parties to impose extra duties in the event that exporting countries are “dumping” their exports. Dumping is defined as selling for “less than the comparable price in the ordinary course of trade in the exporting country” (GATT, Article VI).
The TRIPS agreement addresses many other aspects involved in the protection of intellectual property rights and the prevention of their abuse. For example, the terms of the Agreement do not cover the patentability of diagnostic, therapeutic or surgical procedures. Patent protection can also be denied to animals and plants, not including microbiological processes (TRIPS, Part II, Article 27). The TRIPS Agreement does not bar signatory states from passing measures needed to protect morality and public order (TRIPS, Part I, Article 8): signatory countries can take measures to bar the implementation of anti-competitive practices in contractual leases.
