IP Justice has prepared a summary of reports in anticipation of this week’s release from the United States Trade Representative (USTR) of its annual “Special 301 Report” (a report-card on how well foreign countries protect the interests of large US intellectual property holders). The IP Justice table includes the last three years of USTR Special 301 Reports (2004 – 2006).

Canadian Law Professor Michael Geist published “More Rhetoric Than Reality”, an interesting article on the USTR report’s treatment of and impact on Canada and its legal system.
