Manufacturers Support Legislation Against Counterfeiting and Piracy

Washington, D.C. - National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) Director of Technology Policy Brian Raymond issued the following statement today on the introduction of the bipartisan PROTECT IP Act in the Senate:

"Thousands of U.S. manufacturing jobs are lost each year because of counterfeit and pirated goods sold on rogue websites. The PROTECT IP Act, introduced by Sens. Leahy (D-VT), Hatch (R-UT) and Grassley (R-IA), fights this criminal activity and job loss by arming the government with tools to disrupt the sale of stolen intellectual property (IP) on rogue websites.

All manufacturing sectors depend on the Internet to facilitate transactions among suppliers, vendors and customers. Unscrupulous actors online are threatening the growth of these businesses and the jobs they create.

Online sales of counterfeit and pirated goods are widespread, and they threaten the jobs of the 19 million people who work in industries that produce the real goods. Manufacturers urge Congress to support this legislation to protect legitimate businesses and those they employ."

-NAM- The National Association of Manufacturers is the largest manufacturing association in the United States, representing manufacturers in every industrial sector and in all 50 states. Manufacturing has a presence in every single congressional district providing good, high-paying jobs.
