USCBC Recommendations for Special 301 Review of IPR Protection

Intellectual property rights (IPR) issues remain one of the top challenges that US companies face as they seek to expand their business and investment in China. In USCBC's most recent annual member company survey, IPR protection ranked fifth among issues of top concern. Ninety-eight percent of respondents in 2013 reported that they were “very concerned” or “somewhat concerned” about IPR protection in China, with a key focus on inadequate or inconsistent IP enforcement.
