Bibliografía Bibliogr
Resumen: Provides an overview of the World Trade Organisation; in particular, it focuses on two of the agreements being developed at the WTO, which are due to be strengthened in 2005, and are likely to have significant implications for libraries and information: the General Agreement on Trade in Services (the GATS) and the Agreement on Trade Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights (TRIPS). The book argues that the library and information profession needs to be more aware of these agreements and the way in which they threaten some of the professional ethics and principles (such as the balance in copyright)
Globalisation and an overview of the World Trade Organisation (WTO) - the meaning of globalisation; general overview of the WTO. -- The GATS - the agreement itself and the implications of the GATS for the library and information profession; review of various aspects of the GATS as it relates to libraries and information in a variety of different countries; the practical implications of the GATS for libraries in the UK (particularly the state-funded provision of libraries). -- TRIPS - the agreement itself; implications of TRIPS for libraries and information (particularly whether TRIPS is essentially about the trading of intellectual property rights). -- The knowledge revolution - the author argues that value is increasingly being created and extracted from services, knowledge, information, intangible assets and intellectual property rights. Furthermore, that these WTO agreements assist with this process. -- Conclusion: the furtherance of global capitalism through the WTO
