From bloomberg.com:

The U.S. said China has failed to live up to its pledge to crack down on counterfeiters, and laid out a series of improvements Chinese authorities must take to avoid a dispute over the issue at the World Trade Organization.

Thirteen other nations are on that list including Russia, Brazil and Pakistan.
