ACA2K Morocco Country Rationale (Back to top)

Morocco was an important study context for the ACA2K network because, among other things, it provided an example of an African country that had accepted restrictive "TRIPs-plus" provisions around intellectual property.
A danger for developing countries arises when powerful trading players use the WTO TRIPs Agreement as a starting point and seek, through bilateral free trade agreements (FTAs), to secure greater copyright protection, and fewer exceptions, than those provided by TRIPs. Such maximalist IP chapters in FTA agreements are known as TRIPs-Plus chapters and have been pursued by the United States and the EU, both of which have elements in their copyright rules that go beyond what is required by TRIPs.

The US succeeded in including TRIPs-plus chapters in its free trade agreement (FTA) with Morocco in 2004. The US also sought TRIPs-plus, until the breakdown in negotiations, in its proposed FTA with the Southern African Customs Union (SACU) countries: South Africa, Swaziland, Lesotho, Botswana and Namibia.
