Session I: Keynote Panel, Describing the Legal Landscape (Probir Mehta)

Mehta, Probir

Trade has certainly been in the news lately. That would be an understatement. And particularly trade and intellectual property. The last eighteen months have been a really historic time in U.S. trade policy. From the passage of Trade Promotion Authority last summer, in the summer of 2015, to the conclusion and ultimate signing of the Trans-Pacific Partnership, it’s been a momentous time for the trade agenda.

Today I will explain a little bit how USTR develops our trade agenda on copyright, and some of the latest updates on the landscape for international copyright and trade agreements, which of course includes the recently concluded Trans-Pacific Partnership.
