FBI called in to tackle online pirates

A scheme headed up by intellectual property enforcement coordinator Victoria Espinel is urging Obama’s US administration to dedicate 50 full-time FBI agents to a new drive aimed at tackling IP theft.

Its remit would include both physical and online piracy in the music, film and video games sectors.

“We deeply appreciate the efforts of Intellectual Property Enforcement Coordinator Espinel and her leadership and vision in this critical area,” ESA CEO Michael D. Gallagher stated.

“We are grateful for Ms. Espinel's hard work to date, and appreciate the extent to which she has consulted with a wide range of stakeholders, including our industry.

“We look forward to reviewing this plan, and to doing our part to help the US government succeed in its vital mission of protecting intellectual property.”
