Europe: action plan on the enforcement of intellectual property rights is a 2014 report, published by the European Commission.

On July 1, 2014, the Commission adopted a Communication on an Action Plan aimed at renewing the consensus on the enforcement of Intellectual Property Rights.

With this Action Plan, the Commission seeks to re-orientate its policy for intellectual property enforcement towards a better compliance of IP rights by all economic actors. Rather than penalizing the citizen for infringing - often unknowingly - IP rights, the actions set out in this Action Plan pave the way towards a "follow the money approach", seeking to deprive commercial scale infringers of the revenue flows that draw them into such activities.
