What the Defend Trade Secrets Act Means for Trade Secret Defendants
Join Maxwell Goss, Business Litigation Attorney, McDonald Hopkins, Tuesday, August 9 from 1 - 2 p.m. EST for the webinar, "What the Defend Trade Secrets Act Means for Trade Secret Defendants."
The Defend Trade Secrets Act of 2016 (DTSA) – arguably the most sweeping change to the nation’s intellectual property laws in a generation or more – recently passed into law. Much attention has been given to how the DTSA benefits trade secret owners. But what about those accused of trade secret theft?
Participants at our forthcoming web conference will receive an overview of the DTSA, with particular attention to its impact on trade secret defendants and strategies for defending against claims brought under the DTSA.
For example, suppose a business accuses its former employee of taking a confidential customer list or technical information. Or suppose another company hires someone accused of trade secret theft, and the person’s former employer sues the company for conspiracy. What does the DTSA mean for defendants?
