Virtual Event | China, Technology, and Mass Surveillance: A Conversation with Congressman Mark Green

This event will premiere on this page at 12:00 p.m. EDT, Wednesday, April 6. Register for the event here.

China’s rise has been fueled in part by the theft of the intellectual property from American businesses and exploiting loopholes in U.S. copyright law. The technological knowledge gleaned through this malfeasance has been used by Beijing for the mass surveillance and repression of the Chinese people.

Congress is currently considering a bipartisan bill to respond to China’s aggressive behavior and protect American technology, the China Technology Transfer Control Act. Join Hudson Senior Fellow Eric B. Brown and Walter P. Stern Distinguished Fellow Ken Weinstein for a discussion on this legislation with one of its sponsors, Congressman Mark Green (R-TN).
