WTO Allows Infringement Against U.S. IP

James Kanter and Gary Rivlin. WTO Gives Antigua Right to Violate U.S. Copyrights in Gambling Dispute. International Herald Tribune. Dec. 21, 2007. Yes, you read that headline correctly: the World Trade Organization has given a sovereign nation authority to infringe upon American copyrights. Antigua had sued the U.S., alleging unfair trade practices. If you follow international copyright, or study the intersection between trade and intellectual property, this saga is a “must read.”
