White House Invites Input on Federal Laws on Economic Espionage and Trade Secret Theft

As part of its strategy released Feb. 20 for mitigating the theft of U.S. trade secrets, the White House is reviewing existing laws related to enforcement against economic espionage and trade secret theft. The U.S. Intellectual Property Enforcement Coordinator is therefore soliciting through April 22 recommendations for legislative changes that may be needed to enhance enforcement against, or reduce the risk of, the misappropriation of trade secrets for the benefit of foreign competitors or foreign governments. All comments should be submitted electronically using docket number IPEC-2013-XXXX and the term “Trade Secret Theft Strategy Legislative Review.”
