Hi Mickey

It mainly refers to the commitments under the FTA between Chile and the USA: Obligation to adhere to the Brussels treaty; UPOV 1991; protection to TPM and DRM; linkage (although Chile alleges that it has judicial linkage, which was already accepted by the US under the TPP-12; implement an effective system for addressing patent issues expeditiously in connection with applications to market pharmaceutical products and to provide adequate protection against unfair commercial use, as well as unauthorized disclosure, of undisclosed test or other data generated to obtain marketing approval for pharmaceutical products (which it is already in place since the implementation of the FTA. Finally, the United States urges Chile to amend its ISP liability regime to permit effective and expeditious action against online piracy.

I remember seeing this when going through the filings.I believe at least one way of finding it is to go to Chile's filing where they state what they have done and either state or imply what their commitment had been last time around.

Subject: [Ip-health] 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.
