China Appeals WTO Ruling on US Audiovisual and Print Materials

Not surprisingly, China filed an appeal this week with the Appellate Body of the World Trade Organization (WTO) challenging the decision of a WTO panel finding China's restrictions on imports of films and other print and audiovisual materials from the United States to violate WTO rules.  More specifically, the panel found China's laws inconsistent with commitments it made in its Acession Protocol, with the General Agreement on Trade in Services (GATS) and with the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT) 1994.  Under usual WTO rules, the Appellate Body has 90 days to review the matter.
