Way to go Congress...

As reported on Fortune.com, The U.S. Congress on Wednesday passed and sent to President Barack Obama legislation strengthening legal protection for companies’ trade secrets, including manufacturing processes and computer methods.

The House of Representatives voted 410-2 to approve the “Defend Trade Secrets Act” on the heels of it being unanimously passed by the Senate earlier this month.

The legislation, which is backed by the White House, would open the door for companies to sue in federal court for damages related to theft of trade secrets.
