Trade Secrets Webinar: What the New Federal Trade Secrets Law Means for Your Clients

June 15, 2016 • Webinar

Starts: 2:00 PM (EDT)
Ends: 3:00 PM (EDT)

Last month the President signed the Defend Trade Secrets Act (DTSA). For the first time, federal courts will have original jurisdiction over certain civil trade secret misappropriation claims. This is the most important development in trade secrets law in at least 35 years, putting trade secrets on par with patents, copyrights, and trademarks.

The DTSA is the product of years of growing concern over the threats to trade secrets in the information economy, lobbying by frequent targets (particularly those from foreign instrumentalities), and refinement to the language of the law itself to address various concerns.

This webinar will provide an overview of the DTSA, how the courts are likely to interpret certain provisions, and best practice guidance from the experts on how to use DTSA to your client’s advantage. Particular attention will be focused on the seizure provisions and recommended language for employee agreements.
