special-301Special 301 presents an analysis of the efforts that Indonesia has made for intellectual property rights awareness and enforcement through the IPR Working Group under the United States-Indonesia Trade and Investment Framework Agreement. Despite these positive touches, the US review states that they are not effective and as a result, there is an increase in Internet piracy and counterfeiting pharmaceutical products.
