Last November, Ip's What's Up did a special two-part segment on Nigeria and the United States Trade Representative (USTR) Special 301 Report. (Part 1, Part 2.) Nigeria has never appeared on the Special 301 report, and this year, the country continued its good work.
The International Intellectual Property Alliance (IIPA) submits a list of recommendations to the USTR each year. Despite IIPA's inclusion of Nigeria on their "Special Watch List," the USTR did not feel problems in Nigeria warrant inclusion on the Special 301 list. This is certainly good news for Nigeria!
[The IIPA report on Nigeria basically contains the same information as previous years' reports. It is available here.
