Abstract: The profound impact of digital technologies on all aspects of the society, has triggered a new phase of the world economy. To keep pace with technology, the intellectual property rights community has been reviewing the existing norms and rights of the international rights regime and create new ones to cope with the creation, adaption, transmission and distribution of works, taking into account the distinctive qualities of the digital medium. It is hoped that the new yet evolving regime strikes a balance between the right holders and the public, and also facilitates future development of technologies and markets. This article addresses the implications of the new WIPO copyright treaties, the unresolved IPR issues, and issues which may crop up in the future in the context of emerging digital technologies and Global Information Infrastructure (GII).
