Curbing Internet piracy is a big priority for the administration, U.S. Intellectual Property Enforcement Coordinator Victoria Espinel said on Tuesday.
The administration does not have an official position on the Combating Online Privacy Infringement and Counterfeits Act, a measure recently introduced by Senate Judiciary Chairman Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., but looks forward to working with Congress on finding an appropriate legislative solution, Espinel noted.
Espinel’s remarks came at the Future of Music Coalition policy summit where she spoke about the work her office is conducting and fielded questions from the audience.
“My job is to protect the creativity of U.S. citizens,” she said. To that end, her office is working to carry out a strategic plan the White House released in June.
