Ukraine is world’s worst copyright offender: Report

Ukraine has been designated the world’s top violator of intellectual property rights in a new report by US Trade Representative (USTR). India and Pakistan are also in the list. Ukraine was labelled a ‘priority foreign country’, the top category for offenders on USTR’s watch list.

The country has no clear system for collecting royalties, its governmental agencies use pirated software, and no effective system to combat rampant online piracy is in place, the report said. No ‘priority foreign country’ has been designated since 2006.
