Bipartisan Bill Aims to Fight Fakes

September 18, 2008 § Leave a comment


On September 10, Congress proposed legislation that would secure more money to enforce intellectual property laws and create greater penalties for offenders.

In addition to stopping fakes domestically, the bipartisan bill would allow the U.S. Trade Representative to crack down on foreign countries ignoring U.S. intellectual property.

“We can’t stamp ‘Made in America’ on an idea, but Congress can do more to protect American intellectual property around the world,” said Senator Max Baucus.
