WASHINGTON — As the global economic situation continues to deteriorate, U.S. trade officials are concerned China could regress on intellectual property protections, according to a new report.
According to an annual “priority watch list” released by the U.S. Trade Representative’s office on Thursday, reports have emerged that despite increased attention to intellectual property rights in China, officials there are pushing for less stringent enforcement efforts, a trend of particular concern for apparel and footwear companies struggling to protect their brands abroad.
