“We’re going to aggressively protect our intellectual property. Our single greatest asset is the innovation and the ingenuity and creativity of the American people…. It is essential to our prosperity and it will only become more so in this century. But it’s only a competitive advantage if our companies know that someone else can’t just steal that idea and duplicate it with cheaper inputs and labor.” – President Barack Obama

“Mark has been beating this drum, about intellectual property theft on the part of the Chinese, for 6 years. I know at times he felt like he was a voice crying in the wilderness, but let me suggest to you the impact he has had on United States policy. Yesterday Stewart Baker – formerly the general counsel of NSA, who writes a blog about Chinese theft of intellectual property – testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee, outlined the threat, and talked about some of the issues that needed to be addressed, by the Senate Judiciary Committee. That’s heavy. Mark played a role in that.”… Jon Huntsman, former U.S. ambassador to China, and Denny Blair, previously the director of National Intelligence, came out with a report called “The Commission on the Theft of Intellectual Property,” where they talked at length about how the Chinese government and Chinese industry is stealing intellectual property from the United States.
“I think it only fair to say that Mark started this; he got a national level of attention on this particular problem.” – Richard Marshall, CEO, X-SES; former Director, Global Cyber Security Management, National Cyber Security Division, Department of Homeland Security
