When Trade Secrets Go Abroad: Strategies for Combating Trade Secret Misappropriation (Live Webinar)

Trade secrets are a key part of many companies’ intellectual property portfolios, and may become more so with full implementation of the America Invents Act. For U.S. companies doing business abroad, relying on off-shore manufacturing of their products, or subject to foreign competition, trade secret misappropriation by foreign entities is a serious concern. This webinar will present strategies that trade secret owners can use to combat trade secret theft abroad as well as best practices for employers to safeguard their trade secrets.

The webinar topics include:

  • Trade secret issues that impact U.S. companies’ conduct of business in foreign countries.
  • The Federal Circuit’s decision in TianRui Group Co. v. International Trade Commission.
  • Drafting considerations for non-disclosure/non-compete agreements.
  • Using the International Trade Commission (“ITC”) to address trade secret misappropriation occurring abroad.
  • Recent judicial and legislative developments concerning trade secret misappropriation.
