The decision of the European Union to drop Chile from its Intellectual Property 'Red List' in its 2009 enforcement report represents an important acknowledgement of the efforts made by Chile in that regard, according to a News Flash from Chile IP law practice Studio Federico Villaseca. Says the News Flash, the creation by Chile of its National Institute of Intellectual Property (INAPI) and an IPR-specific Police Division (BRIDEPI) are recognized as positive improvements, sufficient to justify omitting Chile from the Red Lift.
So who are the countries to fear, in terms of IP infringements? The EU's report lists China at the first level, Indonesia, the Philippines, Thailand and Turkey, in the second level and Argentina, Brazil, Canada, India, Israel, Korea, Malaysia, Russia, Ukraine, United States of America and Vietnam at the third level.
