Comments submitted to the U.S. Intellectual Property Enforcement Coordinator (Office of Management and Budget, Executive Office of the President) as part of a public consultation on the costs and risks of IP infringement.
Thank you for the opportunity to comment upon the Joint Strategic Plan designed to co- ordinate and bolster the Federal effort against the infringement of intellectual property rights. Even though we are a Canadian-based think tank this topic and your approach to it is very important to Canadians, as it is to Americans. Over 85% of Canada’s international trade is with the United States and, conversely, Canada is America’s single largest trading partner. As the American economy goes so does Canada’s. So it is of mutual interest that we take this occasion to submit our comments.
