Chamber Applauds White House Anti-Counterfeiting and Piracy Campaign

Statement from Mark Elliot, Executive Vice President, U.S. Chamber’s Global IP Center

“Today’s introduction of the new anti-counterfeiting and anti-piracy public education program demonstrates the White House’s recognition of the enormity of this issue of intellectual property theft, especially perpetuated online by rogue websites. We commend the National Crime Prevention Council, Bureau of Justice Assistance, Office of Justice Programs, and U.S. Department of Justice for standing up for the 19 million Americans employed by IP-intensive industries and the countless consumers threatened by dangerous or malicious goods proffered by foreign rogue sites.
