Vol. IV - The Compleat Multilateral Intellectual & Cultural Property Rights Series

The CMCPR 1874-2008 is a reference work documenting 134 years of multilateral cultural property relations beginning with the Brussels’ Declaration of 1874 and, at present, ending with the 2005 UNESCO Convention on Cultural Diversity which came into force in 2008. 

The term ‘multilateral’ means relations between three or more Nation-States and/or International Organizations. This work consists of six parts:

1. Preface: a 35 page review of the co-evolution of cultural & intellectual property from the Republican Revolution of the 18th century to the present including the impact of the WTO’s TRIPS agreement on the multilateral regime.  Read here for free;

2. Introduction: outlines the organization and limitations of the work; 

3. Multilateral Lexicon: includes some ninety ‘legal terms’ defining the types of Instruments making up the multilateral cultural & intellectual property rights regime and the terms and conditions for their performance. The Lexicon has been distilled from many sources.  The Editor is solely responsible for its composition, errors and/or omissions.  Capitalized Terms therein generally refer to other entries in the Lexicon itself; 

4. Summary Index of Instruments: fifty-three multilateral cultural property and related Instruments are presented by summary title organized geographically – Global, Africa, Americas (Latin & North) and Europe (Council of Europe and the European Union). The Summary Index may be viewed using the following link: Summary Index

5. Instruments: each has been fully indexed and presented in a standardized format to facilitate comparison.  Originals are not published in a standard format nor, in many cases, do they include full titling of provisions and/or indexing.  References in originals are, however, fully maintained.  The status of each Instrument is also reported, e.g., when and how Nation-States and International Organizations became party.   For a comparison of a Compiler Press presentation with originals, please see: Convention for the European Patent for the Common Market 1975:   Original  vs. CMIPRS; and,

6. Web Directory to Sources & Instruments which, in the electronic edition, provides ‘live’ links to homepages of relevant International Organizations such as WIPO and to specific Instruments reported herein.  This feature is intended to allow researchers to easily update the work.
