The International Trade Commission (ITC) has announced a new study on intellectual property rights violations and its effects on the U.S. economy. The Commission will conduct one public hearing and prepare two publicly available reports. The hearing will occur on June 15, 2010 at 9:30AM. The first report will describe intellectual property infringement and indigenous innovation policies in China and the second will quantify the impact of this infringement and these policies on the U.S. economy. The reports will contain only public information, no confidential business nor national security classified information. The purpose and content of each report is outlined in the Federal Register notice and the news release, along with relevant dates for the hearing and written submissions by interested parties.

SOCMA members are encouraged to submit information either through this process or informally. For more information or to participate in SOCMA’s advocacy on intellectual property issues, contact Justine Freisleben at (202) 721-4155.
