NAFTA and Agreement on Trade Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights

Both NAFTA and TRIPs establish minimum standards for the protection of intellectual property and the enforcement of those standards. NAFTA and TRIPs ensure that a member state that is party to one or both of the agreements provides a certain level of protection to those individuals or companies protected under that member state’s laws. Other free trade agreements involving the U.S. include similar protections, which is another reason to consider FTA countries for inclusion in your export plan.
