    (WASHINGTON, D.C.) - U.S. Senator Orrin Hatch (R-Utah), current member and former Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee who has introduced legislation with Sen. Chris Coons (D-Del.) to combat the theft of trade secrets and intellectual property, issued the following statement after the U.S. Department of Justice announced it has filed charges against Chinese government officials who hacked U.S. businesses:

    “One of the greatest threats to our economy is the online theft of intellectual property. Today’s announcement by the Justice Department is further evidence that these criminal acts persist and require government enforcement. We must act now to stop such theft. I commend the administration for taking action, and I look forward to working with them to address the root of this threat to our economy, so we can better protect American jobs.”
