US PRAISES PAKISTAN'S CONCRETE RESULTS


USINFO reports that the US Trade Representative, Rob Portman, has announced that the US has decided that Pakistan is eligible for preferential tariffs under the Generalized System of Preferences. A group of IP owners had argued that Pakistan was not doing enough to protect intellectual property to be eligible, but Portman has announced that the US is satisfied in particular with steps that Pakistan has taken against optical disk piracy. In particular, Portman has praised the “concrete results, including destruction of pirated optical disks, plant closures, arrests, and confiscations of imported disks" that have resulted from Pakistan’s enforcement efforts.

The IPKat says that it’s nice to hear the US satisfied with enforcement measures for a change.

No comments:

All comments must be moderated by a member of the IPKat team before they appear on the blog. Comments will not be allowed if the contravene the IPKat policy that readers' comments should not be obscene or defamatory; they should not consist of ad hominem attacks on members of the blog team or other comment-posters and they should make a constructive contribution to the discussion of the post on which they purport to comment.

It is also the IPKat policy that comments should not be made completely anonymously, and users should use a consistent name or pseudonym (which should not itself be defamatory or obscene, or that of another real person), either in the "identity" field, or at the beginning of the comment. Current practice is to, however, allow a limited number of comments that contravene this policy, provided that the comment has a high degree of relevance and the comment chain does not become too difficult to follow.
