Mr. CONYERS. Mr. Speaker, I yield myself such time as I may consume

S. 3325 is an important bill that provides resources and enhanced enforcement to combat intellectual property crimes.

On May 8 of this year, the House passed H.R. 4279, the PRO-IP Act, by a vote of 410-11. The Senate has returned the bill and made modifications.

I think this bill retains most of the most basic and fundamental reforms that we accomplished, including changes to civil and criminal IP laws that will afford rights holders more protection and the enhancements in penalties for IP violators who endanger public health and safety.

I reserve the balance of my time.
