WASHINGTON, DC — August 28, 2014 —
BSA | The Software Alliance today commended President Obama for nominating Daniel Marti to serve as US Intellectual Property Enforcement Coordinator (IPEC).
“Effective intellectual property enforcement is critical for encouraging innovation. The IPEC’s office plays an important role in ensuring the Administration has clearly focused priorities in place for the US government,” said BSA President and CEO Victoria Espinel, who served as the country’s first Intellectual Property Enforcement Coordinator prior to joining BSA. “I welcome today’s announcement. It affirms the Administration’s commitment to this important issue.”
“I wish Daniel Marti the best of luck and all success in the role,” Espinel added. “I can say from personal experience that it is tremendously gratifying to be challenged with developing and implementing a strategy to serve the best interests of the American people. My only piece of unsolicited advice is to choose a staff that is as outstanding and dedicated as the colleagues I had the great pleasure of serving with.”
