US and EU launch new website to combat counterfeiting and piracy

From the EU December News Brief:

In connection with this month's Transatlanti! c Council Meeting in Washington, DC, a new joint EU-US website was launched to help businesses across the Atlantic – particularly small and medium-sized enterprises – protect and enforce their intellectual property rights in foreign markets around the world.

"Improved IPR protection and enforcement will result in greater employment prospects and economic growth," said European Commission Vice-President Antonio Tajani, Commissioner for Industry and Entrepreneurship. "Counterfeiting and piracy cause great damage to businesses, not least to small and medium size enterprises. Both the EU and US are committed to helping companies compete fairly on both sides of the Atlantic."
