Trade Secret Theft & Economic Espionage – Call for Public Comment (IPEC)

From the US Intellectual Property Enforcement Coordinator…

Yesterday, my office published a Notice in the Federal Register soliciting public comment for an Administration legislative review related to economic espionage and trade secret theft. The Notice is accessible here. I encourage you to read, consider, and respond to it by April 22, 2013, as input from informed leaders on these issues is vital to ensuring that thoughtful, efficient, and fair recommendations reach our lawmakers.
As you know, trade secret theft and economic espionage can be extremely damaging to American business, competitiveness, and job creation. For that reason, the Administration and the public must work together to provide Congress with the best ideas for how to reform laws related to trade secret theft and economic espionage in the most responsible manner. I look forward to working with you in the coming months to develop these recommendations.

Best wishes,


Victoria Espinel

U.S. Intellectual Property Enforcement Coordinator

Executive Office of the President
