On August 25, 2016, the Office of the United States Trade Representative (USTR) published in the Federal Register a request for comments identifying Internet and physical markets based outside the United States that should be included in the 2016 Notorious Markets List (List). In 2010, USTR began publishing the Notorious Markets List separately from the annual Special 301 Report as an “Out-of-Cycle Review.” The List identifies online and physical marketplaces that reportedly engage in and facilitate substantial copyright piracy and trademark counterfeiting.

Written comments are due by 11:59 PM (EDT) on October 7, 2016. Rebuttal or other information to be considered during the review is due by 11:59 PM (EDT) on October 21, 2016.
