Among other things, this bill would:

Increase the maximum penalty for counterfeiting offenses from 10 years to 20 years imprisonment where the defendant knowingly or recklessly causes or attempts to cause serious bodily injury, and increase the maximum penalty to life imprisonment where the defendant knowingly or recklessly causes or attempts to cause death;

-- Provide stronger penalties for repeat-offenders of the copyright laws;

-- Implement broad forfeiture reforms to ensure the ability to forfeit property derived from or used in the commission of criminal intellectual property offenses;

-- Strengthen restitution provisions for certain intellectual property crimes (e.g., criminal copyright and DMCA offenses); and

-- Ensure that the exportation and transshipment of pirated goods through the United States is subject to criminal penalties, just as the exportation of counterfeit goods is now subject to criminal penalties.

-- Criminalize the attempt to commit copyright infringement, such as in a situation where a warehouse of pirated optical discs is seized before any sales are made;

-- Clarify that registration of copyright is not a prerequisite to criminal prosecution.
