Israel blacklisted by U.S.

Untitled Document WASHINGTON - Israel is among the world's worst offenders when it comes to violation of intellectual property rights, a U.S. International Trade Commission report says.

The Commission decided to blacklist Israel as one of 14 countries identified as serious infringers when it comes to the protection of intellectual property.

The decision comes mostly as a result of Israeli-American disagreements over the protection of pharmaceutical companies' information. The U.S. says Israeli authorities allow Israeli drug companies to examine research information from patent-holding foreign pharmaceutical companies.

Negotiations fail to resolve disagreements

In the past year, Israel and the U.S. have been engaged in negotiations in a bid to resolve the matter, but the Americans were not satisfied with measures taken by Israel.

Countries that have been blacklisted by the U.S. are subject to special American supervision in areas such as film, music, and software.

Other countries placed in the unflattering list include Indonesia, Argentina, Brazil, India, Venezuela, Turkey, Kuwait, Lebanon, Egypt, China, the Philippines, Russia, and Pakistan.
