Default MPAA Wants New Global Anti-Piracy Offensive

MPAA head Dan Glickman testified before Congress yesterday during a hearing titled “Trade Enforcement for a 21st Century Economy" about the need to better enforce intellectual property rights overseas.

-- snip --

He proposes a five point plane for a new "anti-piracy surge" to combat the problem:
  • Use free trade agenda to force countries to comply with intellectual property rights
  • Provide adequate resources for overseas training and education;
  • Ensure that the US agencies charged with negotiating and enforcing trade agreements have sufficient resources;
  • Improve our laws to require foreign governments to improve their compliance, especially if they are the beneficiaries of US preferential market access treatment
  • Increased congressional oversight to hold US officials charged with enforcing our trade agreements accountable for their decisions.

The MPAA's been busy lately ...

Use free trade agenda to force countries to comply with intellectual property rights
It's worked against Australia, so why not the rest of the world.
