Statement On The President’s Signing Of S.3325, The Prioritizing Resources And Organization Of Intellectual Property Act Of 2008

“The intellectual property enforcement legislation that President Bush signed into law today is among the most important bills I have championed.  At a time of financial and economic turmoil, streamlining the government’s efforts to protect one of our most important assets – intellectual property – makes good economic sense.  This law will ensure that resources are available to enforce intellectual property laws and coordinate the government’s intellectual property policies.  Americans suffer when their intellectual property is stolen.  I am pleased the President has signed this important measure into law to protect American jobs, American innovation, and American investments.”
