Intellectual Property in Broadcasting – Annual U.S. Review

CASBAA’s submission to this year’s intellectual property review by the U.S. Trade Representative documents an ongoing decline in IP protection in many Asian markets – due directly to mushrooming piracy as broadband networks are built out. Among other issues, the submission comments on:

The Chinese IT industry’s supportive role in global TV piracy

Hong Kong’s decline from being an IP policy leader, as even modest attempts to improve copyright legislation founder

India’s efforts to use cable digitization to repress cable piracy

Indonesian issues on piracy as well as market access

Failure of Thailand’s new copyright law to make any impact on online piracy
