Government says India’s intellectual property regime fully compliant with WTO norms

India’s intellectual property regime is fully compliant with WTO norms, the government said, two days after the two countries decided to set up a high-level working group on IPR during Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s US visit to sort out the contentious issue. The US is conducting an ‘out of cycle review’ on India’s IPR regime based on its Special 301 report. It had in April threatened to downgrade India from ‘priority watch list’ to ‘priority foreign country’, the lowest grade. The government, however, said that US agreeing to talk IPR through a bilateral mechanism is a reaffirmation of India’s stand that the issue does not need unilateral action. India has refused to be subjected to unilateral action proposed by the US under the Special 301 report, an annual report on IPR under US Trade Act.
