IPR infringement is highly related to national security because the US is increasingly depending on transnational economic activities related to trade, finance, investment, knowledge and innovation. IPR infringement put these important economic clouts under jeopardy. There is a final set of issues that is making the protection of intellectual property an even more critical issue today. Counterfeiting and piracy in most countries around the world is a high margin, low risk activity. Combine that with a weak legal and law enforcement regime, as again we find in many countries, and you have a situation that invites organized crime and other actors to step in.

The OECD report also indicates the effort of these eastern European countries in the pursuit of IPR protection. : 135–137). More recently, there has been cooperation between WIPO and the EC – the EC, together with signatory countries, was supposed to adopt the WIPO Copyright Treaty in 1997 (Righini 1997: 73–74). Eventually, the WIPO Copyright Treaty was approved by the EU on 16 March 2000. This section explored some problems and prospects confronted by developing countries in relation to IPR protection.

The reconciliation of this dilemma is a crucial factor for the future of the two countries’ foreign relations. For one thing, the infringement of IPR in China affects both countries’ interests. IPR infringement discourages US industries in product investment, distribution and marketization.

The incentive to invest on reputation is largely reduced because those industries will anticipate some losses due to infringement.
