Antipiracy PSA [video]   [open video - 98KB]

"To coincide with World Intellectual Property (IP) Day, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) has launched a new public service announcement (PSA) that aims to raise awareness of the economic impact of IP theft. In June 2010, the HSI-led National Intellectual Property Rights Coordination Center (IPR Center) began 'Operation In Our Sites,' a sustained initiative targeting websites used to sell counterfeit goods and illegally distribute copyrighted materials. Since the launch of this operation, the IPR Center has seized 120 domain names and redirected those domain names to a seizure banner. 65 of the 120 domain names have been administratively forfeited. The PSA is available on each of the forfeited domain names. Through the administrative forfeiture process, individuals who have an interest in the seized domain names are provided a period of time after the 'Notice of Seizure' to file a petition with a federal court and additional time after the 'Notice of Forfeiture' to contest the forfeiture. If no petitions or claims are filed, the domain names become property of the U.S. government. Since 'Operation In Our Sites' began, 65 domain names have been forfeited using this process. Other domain names are still in the administrative forfeiture process."
