Note: This morning, Victoria Espinel, the Intellectual Property Enforcement Coordinator (IPEC), released her recommendations for legislation. The paper is here.
The following statement is attributed to Gigi B. Sohn, president and co-founder of Public Knowledge:
“The recommendations largely address important areas of intellectual property enforcement that are often overlooked in more contentious debates at the edges of these issues. While there may be room for disagreement on specific methods of implementation, Victoria Espinel has compiled a thoughtful list of targeted recommendations for enforcement.
“We note as well her advocacy on behalf of a public performance right for copyright owners for material which is broadcast. While this seems tangentially related to an enforcement agenda, performing artists deservingly stand to benefit from such a system.”
