The assistant head of the White house also said that the US authorities already have some opportunities to take tough measures to protect intellectual property.
The US Congress must pass a law prohibiting the import of products that were created with the help of stolen US technology. Such an appeal was made on Tuesday in Washington at a conference organized by the Wall Street Journal, assistant to the us President for national security John Bolton. A video of his speech was released on Wednesday by C-SPAN.
Bolton said that the authorities already have some opportunities to take tough measures against the theft of American intellectual property. “It’s not a matter of customs duties, it’s a way of protecting intellectual property in the United States,” the assistant President explained his proposal. – I think this idea should be considered… We may need another law.”
On June 15 the President of the United States Donald trump announced that in connection with the “theft” of China the US intellectual property and technology, and “unfair trade practices” of the Chinese side, the U.S. will impose duties of 25% on imported from this country goods worth $50 billion, These plans were implemented in two stages – July 6 and August 23, each of which increased customs rates have begun to act against a wide range of shopping items from China amounting to 34 and $16 billion respectively.
