“I’m not trying to increase the number of cases by 20 percent and call that success,” Morton said. “I’m trying to change the face of IP enforcement. I’m trying to make a difference.”
“It’s a good time for intellectual property rights enforcement,” Morton said. “There’s a lot going on; there has been and there will be in the coming years.”
“Anyone who thinks this is about small-time crime on the corner of Fourth and Main is sadly mistaken,” Morton said, noting ICE and DOJ have never been more active on the issue than at present.
“We want people to shoot for the stars. We want people to be innovative. We want people to make America a great place for the latest cutting-edge idea or advance, and the only way you do that is have a system that protects people’s intellectual property investments,” Morton said, noting that such protections are a constitutional right.
