The USMCA: Intellectual property and digital trade

05 August 2020

This video will discuss the United States, Mexico, Canada Trade Agreement (USMCA) provisions that address Intellectual Property Rights and Digital Trade.

The USMCA provides the most comprehensive package of IP coverage of any international trade agreement since the WTO TRIPS Agreement in 1994 and includes an innovative new chapter addressing digital trade. The USMCA brings Canada and Mexico in line with modern US law and practice in many of areas of IP and sets a new standard for the negotiation of future trade agreements in both the areas of IP rights and digital trade.

For further information about the USMCA and how it can affect your business, please reach out to Scott Jolliffe or Wendy Wagner.
