Preventing Chinese Trade Secret Theft: The Obama Administration’s Strategy on Mitigating the Theft of U.S. Trade Secrets (Live Webinar)

In light of continuing cyberattacks and other attempts at misappropriating U.S. trade secrets, the Obama Administration has issued its “Administration Strategy on Mitigating the Theft of U.S. Trade Secrets.” The strategy is focused primarily on preventing foreign misappropriation, particularly by Chinese entities, and calls for a coordinated approach by numerous Federal departments. Since issuing the strategy, the Obama Administration has made attempts to implement the strategy. Among other things, it solicited public comments on possible improvements to Federal trade secret laws. In parallel, there are several measures pending in Congress that could help protect against future trade secret misappropriation.

This webinar will cover recent developments in the attempt to mitigate theft of U.S. trade secrets. Topics include:

  • An overview of the “Administration Strategy on Mitigating the Theft of U.S. Trade Secrets”
  • Recent Obama Administration steps to Implement the Administration Strategy
  • Industry and public suggestions for the improvement of Federal trade secret law
  • Pending Congressional measures for the prevention of trade secret misappropriation
