Dr. Kamil Idris is the former director of world intellectual property organization. He was born in Sudan and spent his early life in the country before moving abroad. Kamil Idris’s time at WIPO has seen him serve in various capacities including Director, Development cooperation and external relations bureau for Arab nations, senior programs officer for Development cooperation and foreign relations bureau for Africa and deputy director general.
Dr. Idris holds several degrees in various disciplines including International law and affairs, Philosophy, General Law and Political science from multiple universities across the world. Before joining, WIPO, Dr. Idris worked in several institutions including United Nations, International Union for the Protection of plant varieties and Sudanese Foreign Service among others.
Talking on emerging outsourcing destinations, Dr. Idris says intellectual property is an essential tool for development and that information and ideas generated are the critical drivers towards economic growth. He further states that how it is applied will be determined by factors such as national policies and political commitments among others.
On the pitfalls that affect intellectual property as a result of globalization, Dr. Kamil says that WIPO through its Phonograms treaty and Copyright treaty is doing a lot to ensure that the copyright framework is merged with the digital trends. He further states that piracy and counterfeiting that have been brought about by globalization have significantly affected patent application procedures. He believes that the bottlenecks surrounding patent applications can be overcome by creating a common ground that brings the international community together.
Those companies involved in technology transfer, he says should be cautious when it comes to managing and protecting their IP assets. He further adds that companies should build trust and do their businesses activities with transparency and honesty to avoid disputes. Technology transfer is one of the primary objectives of why the patent system is in place.
When it comes to enforcing a uniform patent system across the globe, Dr. Kamil says the trade-related aspects of intellectual property rights that were formed offers provisions for IP enforcement in a multilateral approach but leaves that room for countries to implement them as they deem fit.
