Many people feel like Washington needs to give more attention and priority to intellectual property rights. Especially this time of the year as the Academy Awards has just happened, it seems like a good time of the year to recognize the billion of dollars that Hollywood funnels into the U.S. economy annually. It seems like everyone wants to be a part of the American movie business, however, many of those that want to get involved are not keen on making sure they are involving themselves in a legal way.
Billions of dollars are lost everyday to international criminal enterprises that release and sell bootleg copies of recent films online or stream them for free on the Internet. Intellectual piracy is a serious problem and many people feel that Washington needs to establish some sort of policies that addresses the Internet piracy problem without restricting any Internet freedom.
Many people are not aware, but the U.S. Constitution actually addresses the idea of protecting inventions, which we now refer to and call intellectual property. This means that the federal government is in charge of protecting patents and it seems is not an issue that should be left to the discretion of the United States. Many people feel that policymakers should place more of an importance on finding a sustainable solution to films and their intellectual property rights.
AMD Law is there for all of your intellectual property needs.
