Intellectual Property Training Programs Funded

INVC,, Washington, DC,, As part of United States efforts to combat transnational crime and promote the rule of law and the protection of intellectual property rights (IPR) worldwide, the State Department has approved fifteen new projects totaling $3.36 million in Fiscal Year 2010 (FY10) anti-crime funds to enable U.S. law enforcement agencies and diplomatic missions to collaborate in the delivery of international enforcement training and technical assistance programs on intellectual property rights protection. Training and technical assistance in the investigation and prosecution of intellectual property crime will be provided to foreign law enforcement partners in nations across the Pacific Rim, Latin America, Eastern Europe, Central Asia and Africa. The Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs and the Bureau of Economic, Energy and Business Affairs selected the projects after considering input from industry, other federal agencies, our overseas missions, and Congress.
