EMA Supports Anti-Piracy Efforts5 Mar, 2008 By: Billy Gil
The Entertainment Merchants Association (EMA) has endorsed the Prioritizing Resources and Organization for Intellectual Property (PRO IP) Act (H.R. 4279) and has joined the Coalition Against Counterfeiting and Piracy.
The PRO IP Act, currently pending in the U.S. House of Representatives, aims to increase coordination and enforcement of federal anti-piracy laws. EMA President Bo Andersen said in his letter of endorsement: “The PRO IP Act will significantly enhance the ability of the federal government to combat the infringement of intellectual property and thereby strengthen and protect our nation's creative industries and the retailers that deliver that creativity to consumers worldwide.”
