Rep. Nadler Again Selected as Ranking Democrat on the Courts, Intellectual Property, and Internet Subcommittee of the House Judiciary Committee

Today, Congressman Jerrold Nadler (NY-10), who has served on the House Judiciary Committee for more than 20 years, was again selected as the Ranking Democrat on the Courts, Intellectual Property, and Internet Subcommittee of the House Judiciary Committee. This subcommittee has jurisdiction over patent and trademark laws, as well as regulation of information technology, Administration of U.S. Courts, Federal Rules of Evidence, Civil and Appellate Procedure, and judicial ethics.  The Congressman will also continue to serve on the Constitution and Civil Justice Subcommittee of the House Judiciary Committee.

“I am honored to have the opportunity to serve as the Ranking Democrat on this important subcommittee. I look forward to working with our nation’s most innovative companies and talented individuals on issues affecting patents and trademarks, information technology, and the internet.  I also expect to continue to play a major role in the Judiciary Committee’s copyright review.  Our intellectual property laws are at the core of how we consume media, from watching TV and listening to music to enjoying a movie or sharing photos,” said Nadler. “We will seek to strike the right balance between how artists, authors, musicians, photographers and other content creators are compensated for their work with the desire of technology companies to provide new and innovative ways for consumers to access this content like never before.”

“I look forward to continuing to serve on the Constitution and Civil Justice Subcommittee of the House Judiciary Committee with Ranking Democrat, Congressman Steve Cohen (TN-9).  I am proud to have served on the panel as the Ranking Democrat/Chairman from 2001-2014 as we have faced some of our nation’s most pressing questions, ranging from NSA surveillance and the Patriot Act to LGBT rights, the Voting Rights Act, and a woman’s right to choose,” said Nadler. “I remain committed to protecting the Constitution and the civil rights and civil liberties of all Americans.  I look forward to continuing this work in the Subcommittee.”
