Abstract. The relation between intellectual property vs international commerce can be either positive, or negative, favoring certain countries with better technological infrastructure or increasing their international commerce, but it might also represent a barrier to commerce in case of abuse with its implementation. It could also be an impediment for social responsibility, remarkably in case of developing nations. This research focuses on intellectual property rights in Mexico, its effects on international competitiveness, and analyzes the influence of the TRIPS  Agreement on Mexico's technological upgrade, modernization and industrialization and the effects it has on the social responsibility aspects, such as human rights, poverty eradication and the relation between supply chain and sustainability.
