Victoria A. Espinel, the Intellectual Property Enforcement Coordinator for the White House, has announced the opening of a comment period seeking comments on how the administration should approach intellectual property enforcement. The request for comments is available here.

The U.S. Intellectual Property Enforcement Coordinator (“IPEC”) was established as part of the Executive Office of the President pursuant to the Prioritizing Resources and Organization for Intellectual Property Act of 2008, known as the “PRO IP Act.” IPEC is charged with developing the Joint Strategic Plan on Intellectual Property Enforcement for submission to Congress every three years. IPEC chairs an interagency intellectual property enforcement advisory committee comprised of federal departmental and agency heads whose respective departments and agencies are involved in intellectual property enforcement. IPEC’s 2011 Annual Report on Intellectual Property Enforcement, issued March 2012, is available here.
