Because legislation is presumed to apply only domestically unless Congressional intent indicates otherwise, the provision of the Dodd-Frank Act granting protection to whistleblowers does not apply extraterritorially, as there is no evidence of Congressional intent otherwise. Liu Meng-Lin v. Siemens AG, No. 13-4385-cv (2d Cir. Aug. 14, 2014).  Here, the whistleblower lived in Taiwan and was employed by the Chinese subsidiary of a German company.  The corrupt activities took place in China, North Korea, and Hong Kong, and the whistleblower reported the misconduct to superiors in China and Germany.  The fact that Siemens AG was listed on the New York Stock Exchange did not change the extraterritorial nature of the individuals, entities, and misconduct at issue.
