Session I: Keynote Panel, Describing the Legal Landscape (Steven Metalitz)

Metalitz, Steven

I will talk about what’s been accomplished by the linkage between copyright and trade agreements and what we might look forward to in the future. Most of the major trading countries in the world are members of the WTO, subject to the TRIPS Agreement and that’s really the background, the basis for everything that’s come up since then in the FTAs. A common theme is that these multilateral agreements are really the basis for our bilaterals. It’s the launch pad, let’s say, for our bilateral and plurilateral agreements with regard to copyright.
