Abstract

This article summarizes and comments on the findings of the Panel in DS363. It includes the relevant measures and provisions.

DS363 dealt with a number of market access, trading rights and national treatment provisions in Chinese law, concerning publications and audiovisual products. In the Panel Report, the US vindicate some of their claims. However, a sizable number of their claims is not found to be established, due to US lawyerly shortcomings. Also, the claims do not deal with Chinese content restrictions on the products at issue.

Keywords: WTO, China, U.S., Audiovisual products and services, Publications
