U.S. Reports More Efforts to Protect Intellectual Property

Federal efforts to crack down on intellectual property infringement increased across the board last year, according to a new report by the White House. "Protecting what we invent, create and produce is always important, but at this time, when every job matters, it is especially important that we stop theft that harms our businesses and threatens jobs here at home," U.S. Intellectual Property Enforcement Coordinator Victoria Espinel wrote in her second annual report to Congress.
