The office of U.S. Trade Representative Rob Portman initiated a special process under World Trade Organization (WTO) rules today to obtain information on China's intellectual property (IP) enforcement efforts. The United States is exercising a process established under WTO Agreement provisions on Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights (TRIPS).

Does anyone think the USTR request for information will really change China's IPR violations? Wouldn't a formal WTO complaint be better to get China to act to solve this issue and also be a strong signal of US commitment to using the WTO instead of protectionist measures when trade problems arise?
