This Act amends the National Cooperative Research and Production Act of 1993 to extend the same antitrust protections to standards development organizations (SDOs) while those organizations are engaged in standards development activity. The Act provides that the antitrust rule of reason applies to SDOs while they are engaged in standards development activities.
