 +| 2013 and beyond | The Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement | The //​Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement// (//TPP//) was negotiated between twelve countries that border the Pacific Ocean: Australia, Brunei, Canada, Chile, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore, the United States and Vietnam. These countries represent approximately 40% of the world'​s economic output, making the TPP the largest trade agreement in history. However, before negotiations were finalised, on 23 January 2017, when US President Donald Trump took office, he signed a presidential memorandum to withdraw the United States from //TPP// negotiations. While other //TPP// countries, including Australia, have stated that they plan to continue //TPP// negotiations,​ the future of the agreement looks uncertain without US involvement.|
  
 Intellectual property law has been relatively harmonised worldwide. There are a number of agreements regarding intellectual property law in general, and more specific agreements that apply to certain areas of intellectual property. The World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO) is an international agency, established in 1967 which administers treaties such as the //Paris Convention on the Protection of Industrial Property 1883// and the //Berne Convention for the Protection of Literary and Artistic Works 1886//, //WIPO Performances and Phonograms Treaty// and //WIPO Copyright Treaty//. It is WIPO's obligation to administer intellectual property matters and there are approximately 22 intellectual property treaties under its administration. Whilst WIPO administers the treaties, it does not have the requisite power to ensure compliance of the treaties. As a result of this, the //World Trade Organisation Agreement// was enacted, specifically the part that deals with intellectual property, the //Trade Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights 1994// (//​TRIPS//​). Intellectual property law has been relatively harmonised worldwide.
