Following the Senate Judiciary Committee’s markup of the Defend Trade Secrets Act of 2016, the PAI released the following statement:
The Partnership for American Innovation applauds Senators Hatch and Coons for moving the Defend Trade Secrets Act of 2016 (DTSA) forward in today’s markup. Passage of the DTSA will safeguard American jobs and investment in research & development by putting trade secret protections in line with protections other categories of intellectual property are already afforded. We urge Congress to stand behind American businesses and advance this bill.
–David J. Kappos, Senior Advisor to the Partnership for American Innovation
