The author evaluates the importance of the intellectual property regime in the Uruguay Round of the GATT negotiations. The author compares the American perspective with the Indian one to conclude that with the economic crisis in hand and political instability looming large, India is exposed to an uncertain future in trade negotiations, multilateral or bilateral. Only political statesmanship and nationalist commitment can face up to the pressures and save an otherwise well-intentioned legal regime India now has on the intellectual property area.
