With open access to global markets, innovative American companies can create US jobs and help drive economic recovery. Yet the software industry’s experience in two of the world’s fastest-growing technology markets, China and India, shows there are both opportunities and challenges — starting with a need for stronger intellectual property protections to bring down high piracy rates.
The general counsel of 13 BSA member companies traveled to Washington, DC, November 30–December 1, 2010, to discuss these issues in a series of private meetings and discussions with key policy-makers in the Obama administration and Congress, trade experts, and Indian Ambassador Meera Shankar.
The goal of the two-day event was to chart a path forward for the software industry in both countries, in 2011 and beyond.
