In Australia, these concerns were reiterated in the 2010 Productivity Commission report on Australian trade agreements. In this report, the Commission found that ISDS provisions essentially transfer the political risks associated with foreign direct investment from international companies to elected governments. The report recommended that the Australian government „avoid accepting provisions in trade agreements that confer on foreign investors additional substantive or procedural rights beyond those already provided for by the Australian legal system“ (p. xxxii). Marshall`s comments are still valid today. In fact, each of the above-mentioned authors has expressed very serious concerns about how copyright can be misused. The international aspect that Marshall offers is also interesting. In Marshall`s time, England seems to be the most developed country when it comes to protecting protection laws. Admittedly, the patents were partly motivated by the objective of encouraging inventors to make their discoveries available to other researchers. The monopoly rights they enjoyed prompted researchers to unveil their innovations. However, English and other IpR patents have not always been applied in other jurisdictions, resulting in the problem of overseas parasites.

For example, the United States itself did not respect patents until the end of the nineteenth century. Their conduct was one of the motivations for the 1883 Paris Convention on Patents, Trademarks and Designs, as well as the 1886 Berne Convention on Copyright. (22) Some of these agreements, including those with Singapore and Thailand, are in line with Australia`s obligations under the World Trade Organisation (WTO) Agreement on Trade-Related Intellectual Property Rights (TRIPS). Others, such as the agreement with the United States and the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) agreement (currently under negotiation), go beyond Australia`s current commitment to include so-called „TRIPS Plus“ provisions. The TRIPS Plus provisions provide additional requirements for countries, including the extension of pharmaceutical patents, as required by the WTO. In view of the increasing integration of ISDS provisions into international agreements and the growing awareness of the risks and „systematic gaps“ of the process, UNCTAD has identified five reforms of the system. . . .
