Thursday morning, the Oregon House of Representatives unanimously approved "House Memorial 2"  that supports efforts to protect American jobs and the economy. 

 

Representative Gene Whisnant of Sunriver, who carried the Memorial to the floor of the House says the sale of counterfeit products results in job and earning losses and can be a threat to public safety. 

 

"It’s just a simple statement about how the legislature supports efforts to protect intellectual property rights. And also to stop counterfeiting of products. It’s a big drain on the economy and a big drain on jobs."

 

Whisnant says House Memorial 2 demonstrates their support of combating intellectual piracy and the counterfeiting of intellectual property like pharmaceutical drugs, films, music apparel and more.
