Any talk of adding the U.S. to the list?? Or is this the old, "Do as I say, not as I do"??


I don't think THAT's gonna happen. From curiosity, what trade/IP rights transgressions would you include in a Report listing for the U.S.?

Thanks for the comment

Just the three-pronged (legislative, executive, judicial) attack presently underway on the patent system...

As has been rightly observed, the entire world will suffer if the U.S. continues to weaken its patent system. The trend of poor (from a policy standpoint) judicial decisions, proposed changes to PTO rules, and proposed legislative reform are doing nothing but weakening the system. The true effects won't be felt for years, but are real nonetheless. How is that worse than not recognizing or enforcing "rights" in IP?


I guess the answer is in Matthew 7:3

And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?

Thanks for the comment.
