Justice Department Aids Fight Against Intellectual Property Crime


The federal Office of Justice Programs is giving out nearly $2 million to help criminal justice systems address intellectual property crimes that relate to violent crime and other offenses. “This funding is important in identifying and stopping criminal activity associated with intellectual property piracy,” said Acting Assistant Attorney General Laurie Robinson. “These criminal activities are a threat to our national well being and insult to those who create and develop products, goods and services for the benefit of the general public.”

Grantees include the Mississippi Attorney General, the Bronx County District Attorney, Chesterfield County, VA; the city of Los Angeles, the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department, New York City, the North Carolina Secretary of State, the National Association of Attorneys General, and the NW3C Inc. National White Collar Crime Center.
