Why it matters

While the gears of government turn slowly, matters concerning intellectual property and copyright are globally important, and policy rulings by the United States have worldwide impact.

This USPTO initiative has seen submissions by sports leagues, the TV and movie industries, publishers, and many others.  Site blocking and AI best-practices are among the many anti-piracy recommendations being mad.
