Intellectual property, entrepreneurship and the music industry :a new ray of hope for enhancing African international trade capacity? A South African case study.

by Baloyi, Jele Joel

Abstract (Summary)
This thesis aimed to examine the prevailing international intellectual property regime as embodied especially in the TRIPS Agreement, for purposes of outlining some of the criticisms levelled against it especially by the less developed world. The work aimed to illustrate how, despite the imperfections of the system, certain intellectual property rights could still be used strategically by African countries to bolster the entrepreneurial spirit, in the form of musical entrepreneurship for purposes of enhancing their international trade capacity.
