A new report from the Intellectual Property Alliance identifies 41 countries in which book piracy is rampant, many that are leading export markets for U.S. trade book publishers. The Washington D.C.-based IIPA submitted its recommendations last week to U.S. Trade representative Robert Zoellick. Seven of the top 20 global export markets for U.S. book publishers were placed on the IIPA's watch list, accounting for a combined $1.53 billion in value, based on Simba's analysis of book export data compiled by the U.S. Department of Commerce.
