The Emirate of Dubai has, as a result of deliberate policy actions, been able to
reinvigorate, indeed to reinvent, its Intellectual Property Potential. That is to say
Dubai has boosted its ability to be the originator (and creator) of intellectual property
subject-matter, rather than merely a consumer thereof. Dubai has achieved the two
conditions through which an intellectual property r6gime becomes a valuable
national asset for a country with an initially low Intellectual Property Potential;
namely a structured regulatory framework coupled with effective infrastructure -
related action. Dubai's undertakings in the intellectual property sphere go to show
that even a country that has an initially low Intellectual Property Potential and a
high reliance on raw materials, can chart its own distinct path towards an
intellectual property rich economy.
