EU and US join forces, launch website, battle piracy.

The new site – the Transatlantic IPR Portal – was devised to help small software and hardware developers protect their intellectual property from counterfeiters.

The IPR Portal is geared toward educating businesses, and users will be advised on their intellectual property rights on both sides of the Atlantic.
