McDonnell Boehnen Hulbert & Berghoff LLP partner Joshua Rich authored an article entitled, “Obama Administration Focuses on Chinese Trade Secret Misappropriation” that appears in the June 26, 2013 online edition of Westlaw Journal Intellectual Property. Since President Obama entered the White House in 2009, his administration has undertaken a number of steps toward stricter policing of international trade secret misappropriation. Those efforts reached a turning point early this year with the release of the “Administration Strategy on Mitigating the Theft of U.S. Trade Secrets.” At the same time, however, news reports have suggested that the Chinese government has facilitated – and even been responsible for – the misappropriation of U.S. trade secrets. As a result, the Obama Administration has ramped up efforts to protect trade secrets against Chinese misappropriation.
