Intellectual Property Task Force

One of my old professors, Jack Goldsmith, has joined the Justice Department’s new Intellectual Property Task Force headed by David Israelite. The task force will reexamine how the DOJ handles IP issues and develop a set of recommendations.

According to Mr. Israelite,

The Attorney General is committed to vigorous enforcement of the law and the protection of intellectual property rights, and those priorities will guide the task force as it seeks to strengthen and improve the Justice Department’s efforts in the intellectual property arena.
