PRA Praises Release of First IP Enforcement Strategy

The Property Rights Alliance (PRA) would like to congratulate the Administration and specifically IP Enforcement Coordinator, Victoria Espinel, for presenting to Congress the first national strategy to combat counterfeiting and piracy.

Counterfeiting and piracy is a global problem that negatively impacts all sectors of the global economy from pharmaceuticals to software. In the U.S., intellectual property-related industries employ over 18 million Americans. These jobs are ensured and protected due to IP protections that allow for stability in the industry.

By developing an aggressive comprehensive strategy that pulls together all IP stakeholders, the Administration is taking the necessary steps to encourage innovation, spur economic growth and investment, and save American jobs.
