UK Government Announces New Intellectual Property Crime Unit

“Leppard said the new unit would not only safeguard jobs, but would also ensure citizens’ “computer safety” by ensuring they were not exposed to unauthorized copyrighted content.” – Commissioner of the City of London Police, Adrian Leppard

Following news earlier this month that UK police had begun sending threatening letters to torrent site operators, today the government has announced the creation of a brand new unit dedicated to cracking down on intellectual property offenses. The Intellectual Property Crime Unit at the City of London Police will be funded with £2.5m of public funds and is set to launch in September, targeted those said to be illegally profiteering on the back of content creators’ work.

Earlier this month it became evident that UK police were becoming more involved in the music and movie industries’ fight against unauthorized online sharing.

The National Fraud Intelligence Bureau (NFIB) at City of London police began sending out letters to torrent and other file-sharing sites warning their operators to shut down or face legal consequences.

Just a few moments ago those recent efforts fell into place with an announcement from the UK Government that it will pump cash into law enforcement to help the entertainment industries achieve their anti-piracy goals.
