special-301According to the 2014 Special 301 Report the positive developments in Mexico in 2013 include entry into force of the Madrid Protocol, implementation of amendments to the copyright law that allow rights holders to seek damages in civil courts before an administrative infringement decision is issued or becomes final, and progress in the destruction of seized illegal goods. On the other side, there are the concerns regarding the widespread availability of pirated and counterfeit goods in Mexico and the increased Internet piracy.

The recommendations of the US on these matters are for Mexico to “devote additional resources, bring more IPR-related prosecutions, and impose deterrent penalties against infringers, to provide its customs officials with ex officio authority and to enact legislation to strengthen its copyright regime, including by fully implementing the WIPO Internet Treaties and providing stronger protection”.
