USTR Nominee Lighthizer May Fit Strong Stance On IP Protection - Intellectual Property Watch | Copyright news and views from around the world | Scoop.it
Robert Lighthizer, President-elect Donald Trump's newly named choice for United States Trade Representative, appears to fit Trump's strong stance on China, including on intellectual property protection, but is a longstanding Washington Republican insider and negotiator of trade agreements, which might seem contrary to Trump's stated questioning of the status quo.
