IP Enforcement Bill Draws Praise From U.S. Businesses

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is backing federal legislation that would give the U.S. State Department more resources and training for intellectual property enforcement efforts in foreign countries.

“Protecting job-creating intellectual property abroad is a critical part of our relationships with other countries,” Mark Esper, executive VP of the Chamber’s Global Intellectual Property Center, said in a statement released Monday. “This particular proposal recognizes that dedicated officials and resources are necessary for effective IP protection and enforcement, and we are committed to seeing this measure become law.”
