@Meredith,

(E) is supported by lines 47-51 "there is a problem of distinguishing trade secrets, i.e. intellectual property ..from technological skills developed independently," i.e. independent innovation. (B) is not supported by the passage, the author claims that such measures may be ineffective (line 19) but we cannot conclude that they are unnecessary.
