Combat intellectual property theft.
The United States should strengthen commitments, monitoring and enforcement surrounding domestic and international rules to protect intellectual property from theft, counterfeiting, forced transfer and infringement by working with international partners and foreign governments.
- Uphold and reinforce norms of intellectual property protection and enforcement. The United States and its international partners should expand enforcement capacity for intellectual property protection and promote meaningful compliance.
- Eliminate technology transfer requirements, including compulsory licensing, and regulatory preferences for indigenous innovation. The United States and its international partners should seek a level playing field by eliminating technology transfer requirements and other regulatory measures that contribute to forced or coerced technology transfer.
