Chairman Rogers Statement on the Report by the Commission on the Theft of American Intellectual Property

The Commission on the Theft of American Intellectual Property today released a report examining the causes and impact of IP theft on U.S. strategic and economic interests. The report also recommends policy solutions to the Administration and Congress.

Statement from HPSCI Chairman Rogers

“It is already clear to me that this report is going to make a very important contribution to the discussion about the grave danger that IP theft poses to our economic well-being.  In particular, all should carefully read what the report has to say about Chinese economic espionage.  I heartily agree that Congress and the Administration need to act quickly to help American companies defend the hard work and innovation that is the life-blood of our economy.  That must begin with getting cyber information sharing legislation signed into law.”
