“We are appreciative of the House’s passage of the Judicial Redress Act. This important piece of legislation will help restore worldwide trust in both the U.S. government and U.S. technology industry, and help U.S. companies compete and win back overseas market share. It is also crucial to our ongoing relationship with members of the European Union, and is a key piece towards the negotiation of a new Safe Harbor agreement with the EU.
