    The European Commission has published its Report on the Protection and Enforcement of Intellectual Property Rights in Third Countries for the Year 2023

    The EU Commission published the 2023 Report on the Protection and Enforcement of Intellectual Property Rights in Third Countries. The report categorizes countries based on their IP rights protection. Turkey remains in the second category with serious systemic problems in IP protection. Turkey is mentioned as a source country for counterfeits and a transit hub from China to Europe. Concerns include inconsistent practices against transit goods, limited ex-officio actions, and ineffective enforcement against online piracy. The report highlights progress in trademark protection but raises concerns about trademark processes, copyright law, and privacy protection. The EU Commission plans to address these issues through workshops and working group meetings.
