Pirates No More?

The Intellectual Property Coalition of the Philippines recently requested the United States Trade Representative to drop the Philippines from the agency’s intellectual property rights (IPR) priority watch list, citing gains made in IPR legislation and enforcement.

John Lesaca, Intellectual Property Coalition chairman adds:

The Philippines has a doable, sensible and reasonable strategy aimed to provide an adequate level of IPR protection or enforcement to its trading partners. There is no doubt that the Philippine Action Plan has worked and is working and bearing fruit.
