About the Task Force

The Department of Justice Task Force on Intellectual Property is part of a Department-wide initiative to confront the growing number of domestic and international intellectual property (IP) crimes. It is chaired by the Deputy Attorney General.

Why is it important to combat intellectual property crime?

The rise in intellectual property crime in the United States and abroad threatens our public safety and economic wellbeing. A strong and coordinated response must confront this problem. The IP Task Force works to identify and implement a multi-faceted strategy with our federal, state and international partners to effectively combat this type of crime.
