handcuffs2Today 15 new Assistant U.S. Attorneys and 20 FBI Special Agents were added to the U.S. Department of Justice’s intellectual property protection task force to expand its ability to respond to these crimes.Needless to say, the MPAA jumped for joy. Said the lobbying group for the Hollywood studios: “With its implementation of the IP Task Force and appointment of Victoria Espinel as the first-ever Intellectual Property Enforcement Coordinator, the Obama Administration has made it clear that stamping out practices that harm American ingenuity is a strong priority, and we applaud their efforts to combat this threat to creative workers.”
