The scope of this study is far too broad to be thoroughly examined by means of this
thesis. My aim however has been to present to the reader an outlook of the Human
Rights and Intellectual Property Rights of the Palestinian people, of how they can be
combined, and of how they sometimes interact. Since the violations inflicted upon the
Palestinians discussed in this study often have elements of both, it is however easy to
end up with a Human Rights perspective even though it has been my intention to shed
some light on both areas. For the future my hopes for peace and prosperity goes out to
the peoples in question – but how this will be achieved is truly another question.
