This coalition letter calls for the strong enforcement of intellectual property (IP) laws in trade against all infringers — foreign or domestic. IP theft is costing the U.S. economy nearly $600 billion each year, with the rise of online theft being a major contributing factor which undermines U.S. innovation and investment. Free trade is essential, but not when distorted by IP theft. Therefore, we urge that NAFTA negotiations include an important focus on IP protections.
