Washington, D.C. – IBM today released the following statement welcoming introduction of the Innovation Act:
“IBM commends Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-VA), as well as IP Subcommittee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) and Ranking Member Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) for introducing the Innovation Act in the U.S. House of Representatives.
