On September 1, 2015, the U.S. Intellectual Property Enforcement Coordinator (“IPEC”) published a notice in the Federal Register soliciting comments on its third Joint Strategic Plan On Intellectual Property Enforcement. The plan is expected to cover the three-year period covering 2016-19. The Joint Strategic Plan has a decidedly international focus. In particular, the objectives of the Joint Strategic Plan include disrupting and eliminating infringement networks in the U.S. and other countries; strengthening the capacity of other countries to protect and enforce IP rights; reducing the number of countries that fail to enforce IP rights effectively; assisting other countries to more effectively enforce IP rights; and protecting IP rights in other countries. IPEC requests recommendations on improving the U.S. government’s IP enforcement efforts by means of legislation, executive order, Presidential memorandum, regulation, guidance, or other executive branch action. IPEC also solicited data and other information that would support specific recommendations. Comments are due by October 15, 2015.
