The United States Trade Representative (USTR) again placed India on the ‘Priority Watch List’ along with China, Russia, and four others for lack of adequate intellectual property rights protection and enforcement. The latest 2023 Annual Special 301 Report mentions that India remained one of the most challenging economies for IP enforcement and protection, and the country’s overall IP enforcement is inadequate. This report also focuses on the discrepancies in Patent Protection processes and serious Trademark Counterfeiting. The detailed report can be accessed at: Click here.
NASCAP, a leading Association to IPR protection, takes up this serious challenge to have an open forum discussion about bridging communication between India Government, USTR Representations and Industry Stakeholders. As outcome of the conference, we intend to prepare a Whitepaper to be presented to India Government, USTR and major Industry IPR Stakeholders.
