The Obama administration is inviting leaders of the top Internet
domain name registrars and registries to attend a three-hour meeting
at the White House next month about voluntary ways to crack down on
Web sites that are selling counterfeit prescription medications.

The invitation, sent via e-mail on Aug 13 by White House Senior
Adviser for Intellectual Property Enforcement Andrew J. Klein, urges
select recipients to attend a meeting on Sept. 29 with senior White
House and cabinet officials, including Victoria Espinel, the Obama
administration’s intellectual property enforcement coordinator.

“The purpose of this meeting is to discuss illegal activity taking
place over the internet generally, and more specifically, voluntary
protocols to address the illegal sale of counterfeit non-controlled
prescription medications on-line,” the invitation states.
