Coordinator of International Intellectual Property Enforcement
An AP story (here on SiliconValley.com) indicates that Pres. Bush has created a new post of coordinator of international intellectual property enforcement. The first appointee is Christian Israel, formerly of the US Commerce Department. They're using words like "aggressive" which I take to be code language for dealing with countries like China that can't be intimidated by the kind of bilateral trade treaties that the Bush administration has used to pressure smaller countries into accepting US intellectual property regimes.
