The ‘Combating Online Infringement and Counterfeits Act” Will Equip DOJ with Tools to
Thwart Online Piracy at Home & Abroad
WASHINGTON, D.C. (Sept. 20, 2010) The Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA), the
principal trade association for the software and digital content industries, today applauded Sens.
Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) and Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) for introducing legislation that will strengthen the
U.S. government’s ability to combat software and content piracy.
The bi-partisan bill, “Combating Online Infringement and Counterfeits Act,” introduced today,
would allow the Department of Justice to bring in rem actions against domain names used on
websites to sell pirated and counterfeit goods. Additionally, if the court issues an order allowing
the Department of Justice to enjoin the use of the domain name, the Department can serve the
order on an Internet service provider (ISP), domain name registrar, financial transaction provider,
or advertising placement service to stop them from transacting business with domain names that
peddle pirated goods.
