The article focuses on the issue regarding intellectual property (IP) thefts in different kinds of industries in the U.S. It is pointed out that foreign governments play a key role in fighting IP theft, but unluckily, there is a wide variance in how countries are attacking the problems of counterfeiting and IP theft. Moreover, it is said that IP theft and counterfeiting is a well recognized problem, but in reality many firms are just coming to terms with it.
