Background: Today, the Office of the Intellectual Property Enforcement Coordinator released its Joint Strategic Plan on IP enforcement. The plan can be found here. [here].
The following can be attributed to Sherwin Siy, Vice President of Legal Affairs:
“The Joint Strategic Plan contains a number of encouraging signs that the IPEC is taking seriously the need for IP laws to be enforced in a balanced and proportionate manner. For instance, its proposal to educate authors and others about fair use and the scope and boundaries of copyrights can greatly improve artists’ ability to create without fear of liability. We would want to ensure that such measures are integrated throughout the government’s outreach, education, and policies on IP.
