Washington, DC—On January 9, President Biden announced the re-nomination of Deborah Robinson as the next Intellectual Property Enforcement Coordinator (IPEC), eight months following her original nomination in 2023. On January 10, Copyright Alliance CEO Keith Kupferschmid issued the following statement in support of Robinson’ re-nomination by the Biden Administration and in anticipation of the upcoming vote by the Senate:

“As I have previously stated, the position of Intellectual Property Enforcement Coordinator (IPEC) is crucial to the United States’ continued strong and effective support for intellectual property (IP) laws and policies, both domestically and abroad. The Copyright Alliance is pleased to learn that the White House has re-nominated Deborah Robinson to be the next IPEC and urges the Senate to expeditiously consider and approve her nomination.

“Deborah Robinson is an accomplished attorney, experienced IP content and protection specialist, and former prosecutor who has real world experience. We are confident that, upon confirmation of her nomination, she will do a tremendous job in this critical role as she works to further IP protections across the country.”
