China Continues to Fall Short of Promises to Protect Intellectual Property, U.S. Says
The New York Times
WASHINGTON — The Office of the United States Trade Representative criticized China, Russia and other countries on Wednesday for continuing to fall short of promises to protect intellectual property in a report that cataloged various infringements by America’s trading partners.
The annual report placed 27 trading partners on so-called watch lists for intellectual property infringement, and labeled Argentina, Chile, China, India, Indonesia, Russia and Venezuela as being on a “priority watch list” of countries that had the most egregious practices or the biggest effect on U.S. businesses.
In a call with reporters on Wednesday, senior U.S.T.R. officials said the Biden administration continued to closely monitor China’s progress in carrying out the commitments it had made to strengthen its protections for foreign copyrights, trade secrets and other forms of intellectual property in a 2020 trade deal signed with President Donald J. Trump.
