Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP): What does it incorporate to IP?

The TPP, upon entry into force, will be the largest free trade zone in the world, consisting of 800 million consumers, representing about 40% of global GDP and one-third of the world trade. It was signed by 12 countries, among which five of them are American (Canada, Chile, USA, Mexico and Peru). The chapter on Intellectual Property (Chapter 18) covers a wide range of issues that must be analyzed in order to determine its impact on those countries and what, in turn, may represent for the American continent, understanding the level of influence a commercial area of this size may still have in non-member countries. What does this new international instrument incorporate? What impact could it have on the American and global scenarios? Speakers will address the relevant content on IP and share their analysis with a practical approach to the new challenges that its implementation may represent.
