In light of current negotiations concerning NAFTA and GATT, the question of intellectual property and its impact on international trade has taken on renewed urgency. The recognition and enforcement of intellectual property rights in national jurisdictions can serve to encourage international trade and economic growth or can create barriers to free and open commercial exchange. In this timely volume, Canadian, American, and Mexican scholars examine these landmark agreements and reassess the effects of intellectual property rights on international trade. Focusing on trade and intellectual property policies and practices between and within North America and Europe, they address several key issues, including "gray marketing" in North American and European trading blocs, U.S. trade policy concerning enforcement of intellectual property rights, and dramatic changes in Mexican law regarding intellectual property. The volume is essential for scholars working in intellectual property rights, international trade, and the global economy. Policymakers and anyone wishing to stay current with world trade negotiations will also find this book useful.
