29 February 2012. On February 28 2012 President Obama signed an executive order Tuesday to create a new trade agency to protect American intellectual property and enforce other trade rights.
The new Interagency Trade Enforcement Center will bring together a wide range of trade experts, including analysts and lawyers who will examine enforcement issues, the White House said.
U.S. Trade Representative Ron Kirk will pick the center's director, and Commerce Secretary John Bryson will choose a deputy deputy director, according to a statement.
The agency will work with the White House's Intellectual Property Enforcement Coordinator to combat copyright infringement.
