U.S. Says China Top Priority on Copyright Action: China was cited as the worst pirate of copyrights and patents and the highest priority for action in a report released by the U.S. trade representative's office. The report said that although some progress had been made by Beijing in halting the retail trade of pirated music, films and computer software, it has failed to stop widespread production of counterfeit products. The report also said the agency was filing formal complaints with the World Trade Organization against Portugal, India, Pakistan and Turkey. Acting Trade Representative Charlene Barshefsky said those countries have failed to live up to parts of their obligations under a global intellectual property protection agreement.
