The impact of the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement on the intellectual property
This thesis examines the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) between Canada and the European Union (EU) through the lens of intellectual property law. The thesis considers the discussions that lead to the deal and provides an overview of the impact of this important international economic agreement between two major actors in the industrialised world. The impact of this agreement on the domain of intellectual property law is demonstrated in a discussion of its effect on the everyday consumer goods. In addition, this thesis explores CETA’s impact on the procedures to be followed in the case of infringements of intellectual property rights. The thesis concludes with an examination of the nature of the cooperation between the two Parties and CETA’s potential impact on their economy.
