+ - Intellectual property crime unit to be set up by City police->

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "The City of London police is to establish an intellectual property crime unit as part of fresh measures to tackle copyright infringement, the business secretary, Vince Cable, has announced.

The police force, which already specialises in intellectual property crime, will set up a dedicated unit to target illegal downloaders next year.

Cable announced the move in a speech on copyright reform in London on Monday.

He said the government would run a national consumer campaign from next spring to highlight concerns about illegal downloading and counterfeiting."
