Senator the Honourable Colin Derrick trip to Geneva, Switzerland

May 22, 2006
ST. JOHN’S, Antigua

Senator the Honourable Colin Derrick, Minister of Justice, is presently in Geneva representing Antigua at the third session of the Advisory Committee on Enforcement (ACE). This Conference is being held at the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO).

The session's main objectives include improving the information exchange between law enforcement agencies engaged in the protection and enforcement of Intellectual Property Rights; assessing training and education, as well as identifying the needs and developing teaching materials and methodologies aimed at creating a legal, organizational and technical framework for effectively enforcing Intellectual Property Rights, particularly where counterfeiting and piracy is concerned.

During the session, Minister Derrick will present a substantive paper on behalf of Antigua. This paper will outline Antigua's efforts to improve the awareness of decision makers, as well as attempts made to educate Antigua's consumers on enforcement of Intellectual Property Rights.

The paper will also focus on the nation's situation with respect to educating the younger generation, to increase their respect for Intellectual Property Rights; exchanging information with the aim of broadening the experience of the Judiciary in handling Intellectual Property Rights cases and sharing examples of successful work in Antigua concerning the enforcement of Intellectual Property Rights.

This session is especially timely in lieu of pending Carnival and Cricket World Cup celebrations, since the Conference deals with the enforcement of copyrights.
