U.S. gov¿t. efforts to protect & enforce intellectual property (IP) rights domestically & overseas are crucial to preventing billions of dollars in losses to U.S. industry & IP rights owners & to avoiding health & safety risks resulting from the trade in counterfeit & pirated goods. A coord. structure has evolved to address coord. issues across U.S. gov¿t agencies. First, Congress created the interagency Nat. Intellectual Property Rights Law Enforcement Coord. Council (NIPLECC) in 1999. In 2004, the Strategy Targeting Organized Piracy (STOP) was initiated. This report focuses on: the effectiveness of NIPLECC & STOP as a coord. structure to guide & manage U.S. gov¿t. efforts; & the extent to which STOP meets the criteria for an effective nat. strategy. Illus.Yager, Loren is the author of 'Intellectual Property : National Enforcement Strategy Needs Stronger Leadership and More Accountability', published 2007 under ISBN 9781422315781 and ISBN 1422315789.
