AAP joins other US creative industries urging the US government for sustained engagement with China and Canada -

The Association of American Publishers (AAP) joined with other US creative industries, whose products and services are protected by copyright laws, to ask the US government for sustained engagement with Canada and China, among other markets. The submission by the International Intellectual Property Alliance (IIPA) on behalf of the copyright-based industries was made in response to the 2016 Special 301 inquiry by the U.S. Trade Representative.

Among priority concerns for publishers and learning companies is the continuing deterioration of the educational publishing market in Canada as a result of the overly broad exception to copyright for educational materials under the country's Copyright Modernization Act.

The IIPA submission identifies copyright and market access concerns in 17 countries and recommends a designation of the Ukraine as a priority foreign country, the placement of six nations on the Priority Watch List, and nine more on USTR's Watch List. AAP endorses IIPA's recommendations and urges the US government to heighten engagement with Canada and China to address the deficiencies in their copyright protection and enforcement regimes, particularly as they affect the publishing sector.
