special-301The major concerns about Turkey that are presented in the 2014 Special 301 Watch List include  the export from and transshipment through Turkey of counterfeit and pirated products,  the manufacture of counterfeited luxury goods, digital media, and textiles, software piracy,  need of transparent and effective enforcement of IPR, and the need of ex officio authority to the Police in Turkey. In fact, there is no finalization of the legislative proposals supposed to improve copyright and industrial property protection.

The United States acknowledges Turkey`s achievements in the IPR enforcement, as the prosecution of individuals selling counterfeit medicines online,  the confiscation of printing presses and materials used to counterfeit pharmaceutical packaging and  pirated books, counterfeited food products, and counterfeited cancer treatments. The United States also distinguishes the work of the Turkish National Police, Turkish Patent Institute, and Ministry of Culture and Tourism, and other government agencies in training and public awareness initiatives
