Globalization has challenged the effect of intellectual property rights (IPRs), leading businesses to change strategy, processes, production, distribution and infrastructure in order to capitalize on the global economy. Since each nation governs differently, including all nations in a multilateral trading system that enforces IPRs in an identical manner has proven to be unbalanced and impracticable. The current structure of intellectual property (IP) governance and enforcement for original innovation is incapable of adapting to the changes taking place in the competitive global market; a balanced IPR system sensitive to economic and sociological changes in which creators can and will produce new works must be established.
