Abstract

The research focuses on the intellectual property developments made by the member states of the Gulf Co-operation Council (GCC) and how intellectual property development can act as a catalyst for financial prosperity. The main purpose of the research is to analyse and examine the intellectual property provisions currently in existence within the six states of the GCC and agreements entered into by the states collectively under the GCC Union.
The aim is to provide recommendations to improve the current level of intellectual property protection at a state level in the GCC through an integrated protection model which takes into account; the structure of the GCC states, international agreements and pressures, the international institutions, Islamic finance and both societal and religious views.
