NAFTA: Would NAFTA uphold patent and intellectual property standards?

  • NAFTA does well

    NAFTA is an important treaty for the US and for Canada and Mexico, allowing close allies with no recent history of aggression to freely trade amongst themselves. NAFTA does a fairly good job upholding patents and IP, with the exception of instances of prescription drugs, which are sold far cheaper in other countries.

  • NAFTA Would not uphold standards

    When it comes to intellectual property and patents, they vary from nation to nation. A country in a free trade agreement may choose to uphold these standards legally, but in order to give themselves an edge and to improve their economies they would probably look the other way when it comes to enforcing the standards.
