Officials from the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) recently joined law enforcement and security professionals at the 11th annual International Law Enforcement Intellectual Property Crime Conference. The two-day conference took place at the end of August.
The conference aims to combat transnational organized intellectual property crime and develop joint initiatives with an emphasis on enforcement. This year’s conference focused on illicit trafficking on the internet and protecting the public from potentially harmful counterfeit products, such as pharmaceuticals.
The event was co-hosted by INTERPOL, ICE’s Homeland Security Investigations-led National Intellectual Property Rights Coordination Center, in partnership with Underwriters Laboratories and the International Anti-Counterfeiting Coalition.
