ABSTRACT:

In the context of growing political debates in the U.S., Canada,
European Union and elsewhere on whether and how disciplines on domestic
intellectual property law should be included in international trade
agreements, Professor Jeremy DeBeer from the University of Ottawa
present his recent paper: "Implementing International Trade Agreements
in Federal Systems." The presentation will include discussions of
intellectual property issues in the negotiation towards a Comprehensive
Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) between Canada and the European
Union (EU) as well as examples from the recently concluded negotiation
on the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement. Professor DeBeer will focus
on three specific examples of current controversies related to the
regulation of intellectual property in the fields of pharmaceutical data
protection, digital rights management (DRM), and geographic indications.
