RIAA Chairman Applauds Anti-Piracy Actions By U.S. Mayors

Recording Industry Association of America Chairman & CEO Mitch Bainwol offered praise for a historic resolution passed by the U.S. Conference of Mayors that prioritizes the implementation of stronger training, education and enforcement policies across all levels of government to fight the theft of U.S. intellectual property (IP) such as music and movies.

The resolution, adopted this week during the 75th Annual Meeting of the U.S. Conference of Mayors (USCM) in Los Angeles, is titled "Supporting Comprehensive Plan to Combat Global Piracy and Counterfeiting of Goods." Spearheaded by Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, the resolution commits its members to increasing anti-piracy resources to fight global IP theft as well as the criminal organizations involved in this illegal activity.

"The adoption of this resolution serves as a reminder that the theft of copyrighted works affects the smallest of towns and the largest of cities," said Bainwol. "Piracy costs cities significant tax revenue that could be used for municipal priorities and results in lost jobs and wages for U.S. workers. In addition, city officials must be aware of the exposure to dangerous criminal organizations that actively engage in this theft."

In addition to the commitment to increasing anti-piracy resources and strengthening policies to fight IP theft, the Mayors' resolution also calls for its members to implement tighter internal policies and practices that detect and prevent piracy - such as the use of illegal peer-to-peer applications - on government-owned computers.

"This resolution also represents another indication that technology is a viable tool to protect the integrity of computer networks and prevent the theft of copyrighted works," added Bainwol. "I applaud the U.S. Conference of Mayors for their commitment to preserving U.S. intellectual property by setting forth these proactive initiatives that should no doubt serve as a model basis for other cities. Their recognition of the corrosive effect that copyright theft has on the U.S. economy is essential to advancing anti-piracy efforts."
