What international treatiescomprehensively protectIP rights?

The Paris Convention, which was established in 1883, provides protection for various types of industrial property, such as patents, utility models, industrial designs, trademarks, service marks, trade names, geographical indications and names of origin, as well as the prevention of unfair competition. However, it does not cover the protection of copyright, new plant varieties, or exclusive rights to the layout designs of integrated circuits.

On the other hand, the TRIPS Agreement was signed in 1994 and provides protection for a wide range of IP rights, including but not limited to copyright and related rights, trademarks, geographical indications, industrial designs, patents, layout designs of integrated circuits, and undisclosed information.
