The World Trade Organization (WTO) is an organization founded in 1995 to promote so-called free trade. The United States is a member of the WTO, along with 149 other nations. Russia has expressed interest in joining, but has as of present been unable to overcome difficulties with other nations, such as those relating to human rights, its economic policies, and its lax copyright laws, among others.

In 2007, the WTO ruled that Antigua and Barbuda may have violated United States copyright laws as a sanction against it for prohibiting internet gambling.[3]
