The Senate confirmed Vishal Amin as the White House intellectual property enforcement coordinator (IPEC) today.
Amin was previously senior counsel for the House Judiciary Committee.
The IP enforcement position was created in 2008 within the Executive Office of the President, during the Obama administration. The last person in the position was Daniel Marti, who had no staff but was the administration’s public face on matters relating to overseas infringement of U.S.-owned IP.
The IPEC job has been vacant since Marti resigned with the rest of Obama’s White House team.
