Abstract: Human rights and intellectual property protection are two distinct areas of law and have largely evolved separately over time. Nevertheless, a number of links between the two can be identified. On the human rights side, the question of recognition of a human right to intellectual property has been a topic of increasing debate since the adoption of TRIPS Agreement. This falls within the context of the increasingly visible impacts of intellectual property rights on the realization of human rights such as the right to health and in the context of Article 15(1) of the Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (ESCR) which provides a framework for addressing the place of knowledge and intellectual development in a human rights context. This article focuses on recent developments concerning the understanding of Article 15(1) of the Covenant and focuses on the need to find a balance between the claims of intellectual property rights holders and all other actors making contributions to intellectual development, such as traditional knowledge holders.
