February 23, 2010: IPEC Seeking Public Input on IP Enforcement Strategy

The Office of the Intellectual Property Enforcement Coordinator (IPEC) is seeking written submissions from the public pertaining to the Federal Government's intellectual property (IP) strategy. The government is currently developing an overall plan for enforcing IP rights and battling against infringement. While IPEC seeks feedback on a variety of issues, there is one area that should be of particular interest to the EDUCAUSE community. The government is asking that people address "the effectiveness of recent efforts by educational institutions to reduce or eliminate illegal downloading over their networks." They ask that submissions include recent specific examples.

For more information, please see the Federal Register announcement here. Comments are due on or before March 24, 2010.
