The European Observatory on Counterfeiting and Piracy was set up within the European Commission in 2009, as a platform for coordinating actions to protect intellectual property rights across Europe. Under a new Regulation, the Observatory is renamed the ’European Observatory on Infringements of Intellectual Property Rights’ and is managed by the Office for Harmonisation in the Internal Market (OHIM). The proposed change was published as COM(2011) 288, with the original name to be retained.
