WASHINGTON — A World Trade Organization panel said Wednesday that China disobeyed trade rules by creating barriers to imports of U.S. books, music, videos and movies, a warning to Beijing over its handling of intellectual property and distribution requirements.
It is the second recent ruling in which the WTO has sided largely with the U.S. and criticized China for inadequate intellectual property rights enforcement and protection. China can appeal the decision.
