In response to the announcement by the United States Trade Representative and the Congressional Caucus on Intellectual Property and Piracy Prevention concerning the negotiation of an enforcement agreement designed to provide leadership in the fight against piracy in the current environment, the following organizations in the music community released the following joint statement of support: AFM, AFTRA, ASCAP, BMI, NMPA, RAC, RIAA, SESAC, The Latin Recording Academy and The Recording Academy:

"On behalf of America's performers, musicians, songwriters, composers, music publishers and record labels, we salute Ambassador Schwab, along with her counterparts in the key trading countries involved in this effort, for their dedication and vision in producing a blueprint for the kind of governmental response that is required to maintain the integrity of intellectual property protection in an ever changing and complicated environment.

”The music community—by which we refer to all parties involved in the creation and distribution to the public of recorded music—has been particularly hard hit by piracy in recent years. We are confronting the increased role of organized criminal syndicates in the manufacture and distribution of pirate discs at the same time that developments in communications technologies have posed ever more tension on the ability to guard against unauthorized uses.

”If creators around the world are going to be able to continue to live from their craft, then governments must step up their enforcement actions, and legal systems must demand greater accountability on the part of all parties involved in the transmission of infringing materials."

"This announcement sets the stage for enhanced international collaboration in a fight against a global phenomenon. It builds on certain earlier initiatives announced by the G-8 with respect to the need to enhance the global fight against piracy, as well as on initiatives undertaken within the context of the U.S.-EU Summit, the Security and Prosperity Partnership (SPP) with Canada and Mexico, the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), and the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) forum.

”In addition, today's announcement furthers one of the goals contained in the important Council of Europe Cybercrime Convention, which recognized that Internet piracy should be a priority for law enforcement.

”We thank the participating parties for their leadership in producing this blueprint, and call upon each of them to move quickly to redeem the promise of this agreement and to continue to build an international consensus so that we can achieve a truly global response to the challenge of illegal activities that know no borders."
