Intellectual Property: A Key Driver of our Economy

Posted by Victoria Espinel on June 20, 2013 at 08:48 AM EDT

Innovation and creativity have always been the foundation of our economy, and effective enforcement of intellectual property rights enables us to promote economic growth, ensure our global competitiveness, and protect the health and safety of our citizens. Today’s release of the Administration’s 2013 Joint Strategic Plan for Intellectual Property Enforcement builds on our efforts to protect intellectual property to date, and provides a roadmap for our work over the next three years. In preparing the 2013 Joint Strategic Plan, we solicited public comment on how to improve our approach, and that public input was invaluable in drafting the final version of the Joint Strategic Plan. We will continue to seek public views on how to best promote and protect intellectual property rights.

Intellectual property is a key driver of our economy. So it matters that we have the right approach to intellectual property enforcement; one that is thoughtful, dedicated and effective, and that makes good and efficient use of our resources.

Ours is a Nation of entrepreneurs, inventors, and artists. The ideas that American citizens generate catalyze cutting edge research, ensure longer and healthier lives, and power the globe’s most productive economy. Our ingenuity and entrepreneurial spirit make the United States great, and we must fiercely defend that competitive advantage. As President Obama has said, “If the playing field is level, I promise you – America will always win.”

Since the first Joint Strategic Plan was released in 2010, the Administration has made tremendous progress in intellectual property enforcement. Coordination and efficiency of the Federal agencies has improved; U.S law enforcement has increased significantly and we have successfully worked with Congress to improve our legislation. We have increased our focus on trade secret theft and economic espionage that give foreign governments and companies an unfair competitive advantage by stealing our technology. We have pressed our trading partners to do more to improve enforcement of all types of intellectual property. We have encouraged the private sector to do more on a voluntary basis to make online infringement less profitable as a business, consistent with due process, free speech, privacy interests of users, competition law and protecting legitimate uses of the Internet.

Moving forward, we remain committed to protecting intellectual property and are building on the approach set out in the original Strategy. For example, we will continue to look for ways to make enforcement as coordinated and efficient as possible. We will look for ways to further increase transparency and outreach to a broad range of interests and views. We will continue to encourage companies to take voluntary steps to reduce the profit incentive from online infringement, consistent with due process, free speech, privacy interests and competition law, and we will also encourage rightholders to agree to a set of best practices to reduce infringement online.

We will review our domestic legislation to make sure it is effective and up-to-date. We will look for ways to use technology better to make enforcement more efficient and targeted. We want to discourage infringement and encourage those that are appropriately building on the works of others to create new works, so we will educate authors on how fair use works to allow creation of new works. We will increase support for small and medium sized companies that are seeking to expand into foreign markets. And we will begin collecting information on labor conditions in the manufacture and distribution of counterfeit and pirated goods overseas.

These are just some of the important initiatives that are set forth in the Joint Strategic Plan – for a complete list of all items in the 2013 strategy, see page 10.

I want to highlight two areas where we are looking for additional public input. First, we want to make sure that enforcement of patents at the border is as efficient and transparent possible so we are seeking views on how to improve that process. Also we want to know if the voluntary initiatives we have encouraged to reduce online infringement are working well and having a positive impact. So to that end, today the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office is asking the public for input on the best way to assess the effectiveness of voluntary initiatives. I encourage you to let us know your views. Public input is critical to ensure that we maintain the right approach moving forward.

I look forward to working with you to further enforce and protect American intellectual property rights. With continued leadership by the Administration and the support of Congress, the American people will continue to lead the world in innovation, and this innovation will continue to fuel our economy.

Robert F. Kennedy Jr.: Renewable Energy Is Key to U.S. Growth

By  | Daily Ticker – Tue, Oct 23, 2012 10:15 AM EDT

Follow The Daily Ticker on Facebook!

One of the most important issues in this year’s election is energy.

Our ongoing addiction to Mideast oil leaves us dependent on countries that are often unstable and hostile. Developing our own domestic energy resources and investing in renewable energy lessens this dependence. It also has the potential to create jobs and improve our trade deficit.

The two presidential candidates have laid out energy plans that sound similar: both President Obama and Governor Romney want to continue to develop domestic energy resources, including renewable energy, with the aim of making the U.S. less dependent on foreign oil.

But according to Robert F. Kennedy Jr., the president of environmental group Waterkeeper Alliance, the plans are different in several important ways. And President Obama’s plan, Kennedy says, is much better for the country.

“We need to be energy independent but we can’t look into the future by looking in a rearview mirror and say that we’re going to do that through carbon,” Kennedy says in an exclusive interview with The Daily Ticker. The idea that there’s not a future for wind and solar energies in the U.S. “is just a hoax.”

Kennedy gives the example of a solar plant being built in the Mojave Desert. The plant will be one of the largest power plants in the U.S. and will be completed in three years. Coal plants take 10 years to build, Kennedy points out, and nuclear power plants can take as many 30 years. The solar plant costs $3 billion a gigawatt versus $15 billion for a nuke plant, one-fifth of the cost. Alternative energy sources like solar and wind are not only environmentally-friendly policies, but they’re also smarter economic choices too, Kennedy says.

“We can do it cheaper, we can do it more efficiently, but we need a national commitment to do that,” he says. “You’ve got China, you’ve got Germany, you’ve got the rest of the world who are looking forward, who are building these new technologies and we have the lead. We ought to be continuing that lead and selling them these new technologies not just lagging behind sitting on our hands and letting the Koch brothers dictate our national energy policy.”

According to Kennedy, Gov. Romney is merely paying lip-service to the importance of renewable energy. Romney’s primary focus, Kennedy says, is helping his friends in the traditional energy industry: oil companies, coal companies, and nuclear companies. These companies already benefit from massive and largely ignored government subsidies, and they create pollution that makes the cost of the energy they produce much higher than it initially seems.

Kennedy says he believes strongly in free-market capitalism. But he also observes that new industries often need government help, especially when they’re competing with unfathomably rich and powerful incumbents.

“Government has picked the winners,” he notes. “We give to the oil industry; we give $55 billion in direct subsidies each year. That’s more than all the renewables put together have ever gotten in history. If we stripped away the subsidies, coal could not compete in the marketplace. Oil could not compete in the marketplace and nuclear definitely could not. You know, you can burn prime rib to make energy, why are we going with the most expensive stuff?”

The environment is not the sole beneficiary of an alternative energy policy. Jobs in the wind and solar industries are high paying, plentiful and are restoring the U.S. manufacturing sector, Kennedy says.

“We’re employing more people in the wind industry than there are coal miners in America,” he points out. “Today there’s less than 14,000 miners in West Virginia and less than half of them are unionized. They have very little if any job security or pensions. The mountains of that state are being liquidated for cash, the communities are being destroyed and it’s the second poorest state in our country. There are two different models for industry and you have to ask yourself: what do we want for the American economy? Do we want to measure the economy by how many millionaires it produces or do we want to measure the economy by how, and this is how we ought to be measuring it, by how it produces jobs and the dignity of jobs over the long term for every American?”

America should make a big bet on renewables, says Kennedy. Doing so will not just reduce our dependence on Mid-East oil. It will also help build a major new industry that will create thousands of jobs, bolster American manufacturing, and help build a much more sustainable and healthy economy.

A Key, 21st Century

There are numerous elements to consider as we move into the 21st Century to participate in its interrelated developmental efforts.  A key to understanding how to contribute is the debate that many embrace.  Such a key for consideration is provided by The Millennium Project.  http://www.millennium-project.org/millennium/challenges.html.  I particularly find their graphical tool interesting and informative.

Another great contribution to this discussion is by GERD LEONHARD.  http://www.mediafuturist.com/2009/01/collaboration-is-the-key-to-21st-century-content-economics.html.  In my opinion, the below illustration is both informative and useful.
