World Trade Institute advanced studies ; 2. International Law E-Books Online, Collection 2016, ISBN ; 9789004303904.
In The Protection Against Unfair Competition in the WTO TRIPS Agreement , Christian Riffel offers an account of the potential which Article 10bis of the Paris Convention has for the world trading system. In particular, the author explores what hard law obligations emerge and examines a possible application to unsettled issues, such as core labour standards and traditional knowledge. Article 10bis embodies unfair competition law in a nutshell. The TRIPS Agreement incorporates this Article into the World Trade Organization, thus making unfair competition law a discipline of international trade law. By providing an effective enforcement mechanism against unfair competition, the WTO upholds 'honest practices' in the course of trade, alleviating enforcement deficits in other areas of international law.
