Why non-EU countries only?
I’ve asked myself this question about the USTR Special 301 survey, and I ask it again for the EU survey. If you are going to critique others, why do you not also critique yourself at the same time. At the very least, it will remove ammunition from the critics of the report. Of course, this approach is only valid if you compare against an external reference, such as WIPO, as opposed to your own laws.
