Trade Secret Update: "Key Developments and Issues to Watch in Trade Secret Law"

This inaugural edition of Trade Secret Update focuses on reported decisions applying and changing trade secret law.  Important aspects of trade secret law continue to be shaped across jurisdictions, including the propriety of various damages theories, trade secret specifications and the preemptive effect of the Uniform Trade Secrets Act.  Also addressed are recent cases involving criminal aspects of trade secret misappropriation and the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, which continues to play a role in many trade secret cases, and the circuit split that continues to plague that statute.
