Daniel Marti Confirmed As New U.S. Intellectual Property Enforcement Coordinator
Mr. Marti will represent the interests of millions of workers who comprise a $1 trillion copyright economy in the United States.
The U.S. Senate has confirmed Daniel Marti to be the new U.S. Intellectual Property Enforcement Coordinator (IPEC), clearing the way for his swearing-in and official duties to begin. Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) Senior Executive Vice President Mitch Glazier offered the following comment:
“Mr. Marti will soon occupy an increasingly important White House job on behalf of the millions of workers who comprise the country’s more than $1 trillion copyright economy. For music specifically, we have tossed out the rulebook and reinvented ourselves as a digital business with more than two-thirds of our revenues deriving from digital platforms. But one rule remains the same – that intellectual property protection helps fuel music innovation and creativity. And as we move deeper into this digital age, it’s even more clear that the major players in the Internet ecosystem have an important role in securing a safer and more reliable online experience for consumers. We are grateful for the leadership shown by the IPEC in the past to encourage voluntary agreements with Internet service providers, payment processors and advertising networks. There’s a lot more we can accomplish going forward on a voluntary basis with the smart and pragmatic stewardship of Mr. Marti.”
