The Office of the U.S. Trade Representative earlier this week released its annual review of international trading partners’ protection of intellectual property rights, known as the Special 301 Report.
A subcommittee looked at 82 countries and the USTR placed 37 of them on either the “Priority Watch List” or the “Watch List.”

The 63-page report devotes a section to copyright issues in the Caribbean:
“The United States also would like to highlight serious concerns regarding copyright protection and enforcement in the Caribbean region: music licensing and cable and satellite broadcasting,” the report states.
