IA filed comments urging USTR to include substantive discussion in the 2019 Special 301 Report of the role that limitations, exceptions, and intermediary liability protections play with advancing internet companies. Each year, USTR conducts a Special 301 review to identify countries that deny adequate and effective protection of intellectual property rights or deny fair and equitable market access to U.S. citizens relying on IP protection. Based on this review, USTR determines which, if any, of these countries to identify as Priority Foreign Countries.
