special-301According to the 2014 Special 301 Report, Russia is still on the Priority Watch List due to not resolved issues related to the Intellectual property rights protection and enforcement. As per the Special 301 the major concerns about Russian IP protection system are:”manufacture, transshipment and retail availability of counterfeit goods, including counterfeits of agricultural chemicals, electronics, information technology, auto parts, consumer goods, machinery, and other products, a decrease in raids, initiations of criminal cases, and issuances of court verdicts”
The US define the Civil Code changes that Russia has made as confusing, which is revealing the need of “more transparent and effective legal framework and enforcement strategy to reduce the sale of counterfeit goods online and piracy of copyright-protected content”.
