Kyrgyzstan is the only country in Central Asia with a well-developed intellectual property protection strategy, stated Saule Tlevlessova, WIPO’s representative from the Division for Certain Countries in Europe and Asia, during a seminar on copyright and related rights in Kyrgyzstan, on March 1, 2011.

Tlevlessova emphasized that statistics provided by international organizations show that piracy and copyright infringement are at a much lower level in Kyrgyzstan than in the other former Soviet countries including Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Ukraine and Uzbekistan.
