Congressman Hakeem Jeffries was elected in 2012 to represent the newly-redrawn Eighth Congressional District of New York, which is anchored in Brooklyn and also contains parts of Southwest Queens. 

The congressman is a member of both the Judiciary and Budget Committees.  On Judiciary he serves on the Subcommittee on the Courts, Intellectual Property, and the Internet as well as the Subcommittee on Regulatory Reform, Commercial, and Antitrust Law.

One of the congressman’s top priorities is the protection of intellectual property rights.  In 2013, Congressman Jeffries along with Rep. Blake Farenthold (R-TX-27) introduced the Patent Litigation and Innovation Act of 2013 (H.R. 2639) to curb patent trolling.  

Congressman Jeffries recently met with DDF to engage in a dialogue on patent and intellectual property rights reform.

Congressman Fred Upton was elected in 1987 to represent Michigan’s Sixth Congressional District, which is located along Lake Michigan in the southwestern corner of the state.

In 2011 Congressman Upton was elected by his colleagues to serve as chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee. As chairman, he has worked to increase the deployment of telecommunications services to every American household. He has fought to ensure that free speech and private innovation remain the hallmarks of this industry by opposing needless regulation. Congressman Upton’s other technology priorities include spectrum reform and keeping the Internet tax-free.

The chairman recently met with DDF to discuss a range of issues before the Energy and Commerce Committee, including: spectrum, a potential update to the Telecommunications Act, Internet governance, immigration reform, cybersecurity, and patent reform.
