U.S. Chamber Pledges to Continue to Find Effective Solution to Foreign Rogue Websites
The Right Solution is Good for Jobs, Consumers, and the Internet
BY U.S. Chamber of Commerce

WASHINGTON D.C.—David Hirschmann, president and CEO of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s Global Intellectual Property Center, released the following statement in response to the postponement of the consideration of S. 968 (the PROTECT IP Act) and H.R. 3261 (the Stop Online Piracy Act):

“Throughout this debate we have been encouraged that all parties have recognized the need to address this critical threat to consumers and American jobs. The Chamber will continue to work with Congress to help advance solutions that will both effectively protect intellectual property while preserving a vibrant and innovative Internet.
“We thank the U.S. Senate, and in particular Chairmen Leahy and Smith, for having the will to work on a bipartisan basis to tackle the widespread theft of intellectual property (IP).

“The right legislation is a win-win-win—good for jobs, consumers, and the Internet. With 19 million jobs in the balance, we appreciate that Congress will continue to make the issue of foreign criminal websites a priority.”

The Chamber’s Global Intellectual Property Center is working around the world to champion intellectual property (IP) rights as vital to creating jobs, saving lives, advancing global economic growth, and generating breakthrough solutions to global challenges.

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is the world’s largest business federation representing the interests of more than 3 million businesses of all sizes, sectors, and regions, as well as state and local chambers and industry associations.
