The Obama Administration’s Intellectual Property Enforcement Coordinator (“IPEC”), Victoria Espinel is starting the process of developing a new Joint Strategic Plan on Intellectual Property Enforcement and on behalf of independent music labels and our membership, A2IM has filed comments outlining our community’s specific needs. A2IM’s full comments to IPEC can be read HERE.
IPEC’s agenda states that “by committing to common goals, the U.S. Government will more effectively and efficiently combat intellectual property infringement.” In their agenda they’ve requested comments from the public and interested parties to better shape the Federal Government’s intellectual property enforcement strategy. IPEC is charged with developing the Administration’s Joint Strategic Plan on Intellectual Property Enforcement for submission to Congress every three years.
