Re: IIPA Written Submission in Response to USTR’s Request for Comments and Notice of a Public Hearing Regarding the 2023 Special 301 Review, 87 Fed. Reg. 76660 (Dec. 15, 2022)

Dear Mr. Lee:

The International Intellectual Property Alliance (IIPA) submits these comments in response to the above- captioned Federal Register Notice as a part of the “Special 301” review. The filing focuses on three copyright industry concerns in U.S. trading-partner countries: (i) inadequate copyright and related laws, particularly where rights holders are unable to fully exercise their rights; (ii) inadequate and ineffective enforcement of existing copyright and related laws; and (iii) market access barriers that inhibit the licensing and dissemination of copyrighted works and sound recordings.
