In 2005, Chris Israel was appointed by President Bush to be the first ever U.S. Intellectual Property Enforcement Coordinator (IPEC).

As supposed leaks appear online, conspiracy theories grow. If you are interested in any aspect of piracy, copyright, or government policy this is not a show to miss!
