By John Eggerton -- Broadcasting & Cable, 1/28/2011 10:22:35 AM
Combating online piracy has been one of the Vice President's issues. He headlined a press conference with Espinel last June outlining the administration's strategic plan for protecting intellectual property, including TV shows and movies online.
The government plan includes: 1) not mistakenly using illegal products itself; 2) transparency in policy development and sharing info; 3) improved coordination; 4) better enforcement of property rights globally, including more help for businesses trying to enforce their IP rights abroad; 5) securing the supply chain, including tackling foreign-based Web sites that offer pirated content; 6) spend its IP enforcement money wisely.
Also on the guest list for the Friday meeting are Verizon Chairman Ivan Seidenberg, Thomas Rothman, co-chairman of Fox Filmed Entertainment, and Public Knowledge President Gigi Sohn.
