Newsbrief: The Office of the United States Trade Representative (USTR) has released its 2013 Special 301 Report, highlighting non-US markets which fail to enforce US copyright.

The Entertainment Software Association (ESA) praised the report, which took into consideration recommendations from the game industry and other entertainment markets to isolate which foreign markets were problem areas for intellectual property protection. The report lists more than 40 countries and territories according to their priority.

Russia, Mexico and Brazil were each shortlisted by the ESA as major contributors to game piracy, with Russia once again dominating the field as the far-and-away leader in peer-to-peer piracy of ESA member game titles. The Association says Russia's continued placement on the report's "Priority Watch List" highlights "the need for a legal framework to address online piracy problems."
