Dear Warren,

Outstanding IP issues for Chile include some of the Chile-US FTA issues:

-          Data exclusivity

-          Patent linkage

-          Copyright issues such as (TPMs, ISP liability etc.)

Chile is one of the countries we have been covering for the last 7 years.
Please have a look at comments that we submitted to USTR for more information

Subject: USTR 301 Report: A question

Dear Colleagues:
There was a recent, interesting summary of the latest USTR 301 report and we have a question.

The summary for Chile (one of the "usual suspects")  stated that "... Chile did not deliver any tangible progress on outstanding IP commitments in recent years."

I've not read the Report yet so apologies but can anyone provide some insight or does someone actually know what these "outstanding IP commitments" are?

Thanks in advance for any help in this.
