Turkmenistan is on the Watch List in 2014

After the adoption in 2012 of a Law on Copyright and Allied Rights and the amendments of  its Civil Code to increase IPR protection, Turkmenistan has not ensured adequate administrative, civil or criminal procedures or penalties for the enforcement of these rights. As per the recommendations given by the United States Turkmenistan has to consider providing “ex officio authority for its customs officials” as a starting point for its IPR development.
The United States also stimulates Turkmenistan to join the Berne Convention on the Protection of Literary and Artistic Works and the Convention for the Protection of Producers of Phonograms against Unauthorized Duplication of their Phonographs (Geneva Phonograms Convention).
