WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — Honduras has agreed to strengthen intellectual property rights protections (IPR) by assigning additional prosecutors to such cases and enforcing laws against television signal piracy, the Office of the US Trade Representative said in a press release.

"Today’s agreement is an important success for the fair treatment of American businesses and workers, including in the dairy, creative industries, telecommunications textiles and apparel and industries," US Trade Representative Michael Froman said in the release on Wednesday.

The release characterized the agreement as a "breakthrough," which was achieved following a US review to determine whether Honduras should be placed on a US intellectual property watch list, the release explained.

Honduran cable television regulators have agreed to efficiently resolve cases involving signal piracy, according to the release.

In addition, the release noted that Honduras has agreed to define parmesan, provolone and bologna as generic, allowing an increase in imports of meat and dairy products from the United States.
