Testimony from Daniel Castro before the House Subcommittee on Intellectual Property Competition and the Internet, on strategies to combat parasitic sites that steal American IP.
And the Winner Is...
Increasing copyright infringement should be recognized as a global problem, not just because it happens in every country, but because in a global economy, the losses will be shared by many. The USTR's "Out-Of-Cycle Review of Notorious Markets" should serve as a reminder to every country that contributes to the creative economy that they have a stake in protecting intellectual property. It should also remind Congress that one reason they should take action domestically is because too little is being done by our international partners and, at least for the near future, we have the most to lose.
