The entire ethos of the postmodern and post-industrial world is being transformed. The changes felt in the postmodern era are reflected at the level of economic and social order. Businesses now focus on producing intangible goods, in accordance with the increasing demand of today’s society. Of the numerous issues brought to the forefront of cultural, social and philosophical thought and discourse by the changes inherent to postmodernity, the issue of intellectual property rights is one of the more poignant. In this article I will try to stress why intellectual property is becoming an acute problem in our world, a problem which is affecting more and more people. Taking into consideration all the inconsistencies generated by the anachronic application of intellectual property institutions, we need a new approach and a new institutional framework, one that incorporates the interests of the public and is suitable to the dynamism of our ever changing society.
