U.S. to take measures to shield Russian intellectual property

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has promised that the U.S. administration will hammer out guarantees against seizures of Russian intellectual property in the United States, according to a Russian newspaper.

Clinton made the promise during a meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov on the fringes of a recent East Asia Summit in Phnom Penh, Moscow daily Kommersant said on Saturday, citing a source in the Russian delegation to the summit.

The press attache at the U.S. Embassy in Moscow, Joseph Kruzich, confirmed to Kommersant that there are U.S.-Russian talks underway in seeking a solution to the problem. Kruzich said the two countries are looking for a way to resume cultural exchanges between them.
