The article explains the impact of globalization on copyright law as it has shifted toward becoming a matter of trade. Globalization, as defined, is descriptive, which refers to the connectedness of people around the world; it is cultural homogenization, where various nationalities now share similar cultural backgrounds with respect to fashion, food, art, and even music and movies; and is economic, where it envisions worldwide growth within one united market rather than in separate geographic and political economies. However, as implied, globalization has its effect on intellectual property. Allegedly, when copyright law becomes a global matter and is applied in a jurisdiction, the result is one of GloCalization because of the meeting of global and local norms.
