Today, May 11, 2016, President Obama signed the Defend Trade Secrets Act (“DTSA”), which Congress passed on April 27, 2016.  With President Obama’s signature, the DTSA has now become the law of the land, and a federal civil remedy for trade secrets misappropriation now exists.  
What does the passage of the DTSA mean for your company?
 
In Seyfarth’s sixth installment of its 2016 Trade Secrets Webinar series, Seyfarth attorneys will describe the key features of the DTSA and compare its key provisions to the state Uniform Trade Secrets Act (“UTSA”) adopted in many states. They will also provide practical tips and strategies concerning the pursuit and defense of trade secret cases in light of the DTSA, and provide some predictions concerning the future of trade secret litigation.
 
The Seyfarth panel will specifically address the following topics:
  • Brief history of the DTSA 
  • What does the DTSA provide? 
  • Provisions unique to the DTSA 
  • The DTSA’s whistleblower immunity provision
  • The DTSA’s notice requirements for agreements entered into or updated as of today
  • Strategies in trade secret litigation in light of the DTSA
  • What should an employer or business do now?
