Jenny Beth’s Journal: FTC needs commissioners who respect intellectual property

The Federal Trade Commission under President Obama was derelict in its duty to protect the intellectual-property rights of a company whose technology helped vault Apple to a nearly $600 billion company – and that same negligence continues to this day, Tea Party Patriots Co-Founder Jenny Beth Martin writes in a recent column.
