WASHINGTON — The fight against global counterfeiting and piracy was front and center Wednesday with the introduction of legislation in Congress that would provide more money to enforce intellectual property laws and create new penalties.
The bipartisan bill would require the office of the U.S. Trade Representative to take specific steps to stop violations, increase the budget for the USTR to assist developing countries in improving intellectual property protection and establish enforcement tools to crack down on countries that refuse to combat theft of U.S. intellectual property.
