The LawBytes Podcast, Episode 15: Cows, Cars, and Copyright - A Conversation With Myra Tawfik on the IP Concerns With Implementing the USMCA - Michael Geist
The new NAFTA - dubbed the USMCA or CUSMA depending on where you live - took a significant step forward recently with the introduction of Canadian legislation designed to ratify the treaty. The economic implications of the agreement are enormous, particularly with respect to digital issues and intellectual property. Myra Tawfik, a law professor at the University of Windsor and Senior Fellow with CIGI, joins the podcast this week to discuss Canada’s longstanding history of facing external pressure on copyright, the role that trade negotiations now play with that pressure, and the implications of the USMCA.
