Regulatory Alert: Joint Strategic Plan on Intellectual Property Enforcement
U.S. Intellectual Property Enforcement Coordinator Requests Comments on Development of the Joint Strategic Plan on Intellectual Property Enforcement
The federal government is starting the process of developing a new Joint Strategic Plan on Intellectual Property Enforcement. By committing to common goals, the U.S. government will more effectively and efficiently combat intellectual property infringement. In this request for comments, the U.S. government, through the Office of the U.S. Intellectual Property Enforcement Coordinator (IPEC), invites public input and participation in shaping the Obama Administration’s intellectual property enforcement strategy. In the first section of the request, titled “Strategy Recommendations,” IPEC requests detailed recommendations from the public regarding specific recommendations for improving the U.S. government’s intellectual property enforcement efforts. In the second section titled “Threat Assessment,” IPEC seeks written submissions from the public regarding existing and emerging threats to the protection of intellectual property rights and the identification of threats to public health and safety and the U.S. economy resulting from intellectual property infringement. In the third section titled “Optional Questions,” IPEC seeks written submissions from the public to assist IPEC and agencies in the development of specific action items.
