Sign the petition against the EU Trade Secrets Directive: https://act.wemove.eu/campaigns/whistleblowers-at-risk (Animated video translated from its Spanish version: https://youtu.be/TDviJ9HMJeA) =A dangerous new legal doctrine is lurking: The unrestricted Trade Secret protection= Corporate lobbyists are using the context of the “economic crisis” as a justification to ensure that their commercial interests are given priority over the public interest. A new doctrine that provides private companies with superpowers such as tools and legal guarantees to protect companies investments far beyond what is reasonable and that corporations can use to hide abusive practices and corruption. This legal approach, in which the benefits of "trade" transcend all other social and political criteria, is what lobbyists have attempting to ensure through free trade agreements such as TTIP, CETA and TiSA. If on April 12th in the European Parliament the current text of the Trade Secrets Directive is approved, the development of this new legal doctrine would lead to very serious threats for whistleblowers who undercover corporate abuses and corruption. We are still in time to stop this. Spread this video, send it to your representatives, MPS, MEPs, and tell them to defend democracy and justice over corporate secrecy.

Webinar | Beyond the Basics: Understanding and Maximizing Trade Secrets in the Global Age
 
01:24:58
This webinar will focus on latest strategies for trade secrets protection, with a particular focus on the Defend Trade Secrets Act and international enforcement options. Join Fish & Richardson attorneys Natalie Arbaugh, Thomas Frongillo, and Caroline Simons on Wednesday, May 18, to get insight into some of the recent trends and developments in trade secret law, including the following: • The Defend Trade Secrets Act (DTSA). It's finally here. How does this much-anticipated statute change the landscape? What new options does the DTSA give companies to protect their trade secrets? What considerations should in-house counsel make when contemplating bringing a lawsuit, and what changes to company policy should be made right away in response to the new law? • International trade secret enforcement. What are the trends in civil and criminal enforcement when it comes to international trade secret theft, including the government's increased use of the Economic Espionage Act (EEA) to protect U.S. business interests? How has the U.S. worked in cooperation with foreign governments (e.g., China, Europe) on trade secret enforcement, and what cross-border developments should companies know about? • Wielding the EEA. What lessons can we learn from recent, high-profile criminal EEA prosecutions? What complications will you face pursuing a civil case if the government is proceeding in parallel with a criminal prosecution? And conversely, what should companies do if a new employee walks in the door with another's trade secrets? • Arbitration. There are pros and pitfalls of arbitration when it comes to trade secret protection specifically. In light of recent developments in this area, how can companies avoid unintended consequences from common oversights in arbitration clauses?

A Primer on Trade Secrets Law for Businesses in Virginia
 
02:28
H. Scott Johnson, Jr., Partner at PCT Law Group in the firm's Alexandria, Virginia office. Trade Secrets:  What is a trade secret? A trade secret is any information that has independent economic value from not being generally known to or being readily available to other persons who can benefit economically from either using or disclosing the information. A trade secret can be a formula, pattern, program, compilation, device, method, technique, or process. So, for example, a trade secret can be a company's business plan, pricing or cost information, manufacturing method, or marketing strategy.  What is misappropriation of a trade secret? To misappropriate a trade secret simply means to use or disclose a trade secret belonging to someone else, provided the trade secret was a) acquired through improper means (theft, bribery, misrepresentation, breach of a duty, or through unauthorized electronic means) ; or b) derived from someone who had a duty to maintain the secrecy or use of the trade secret.  What are the potential damages that a party can recover if its trade secrets were stolen? Typically, if a party succeeds on a trade secrets claim, the party can recover the actual loss that it has incurred as a result of the theft of its trade secrets. Or, if the party hasn't suffered an actual loss, the party can recover damages equal to any benefit that the party who misappropriated the trade secret has gained. A party may also be able to recover punitive damages up to a maximum of $350,000. In addition to a monetary award, a party who prevails on a trade secrets claim may also be able to prevent the party who misappropriated the trade secret from using the trade secret in the future.  How can a business protect its trade secrets? The steps a business takes to protect its trade secrets depends on the type of trade secrets the business wants to protect. A company may be able to protect its trade secret by locking a door -- for instance, Coca-Cola keeps its recipe in a secured vault. Other options include using passwords, putting a CONFIDENTIAL stamp on sensitive business documents, restricting employee access to the trade secret by requiring employees to wear badges, or requiring employees to sign a confidentiality agreement or a non-disclosure agreement.

Defend Trade Secrets Act Signed into Law (with David Clark)
 
01:30
President Obama signs the Defend Trade Secrets Act of 2016 (DTSA). Under the DTSA, employers can now sue in federal court for trade secret misappropriation. Though there is some overlap with the Uniform Trade Secrets Act — adopted in some version by 48 states — the DTSA marks a notable change in how these cases are litigated, creating a federal civil cause of action. The new law contains broad whistleblower protections and new requirements for employers to give notice of these protections. David Clark, from Epstein Becker Green, has more on how the DTSA will impact state laws. For more on this story, click here: http://bit.ly/27HQg0b Visit http://www.EmploymentLawThisWeek.com.

The theft of business secrets is an increasingly widespread problem in the EU. According to the European Commission, one in four European companies was stolen vital information, at least once, in 2013, compared to not even one in five, in 2012... But what is a trade secret?

The Trade Secrets: News Flash! Jurisdiction in Copyright Cases (ES 4)
 
04:33
Intellectual Property Attorney Timothy B. McCormack discusses how the landmark case Washington Shoe Vs. A-Z Sporting Goods helped to define jurisdiction in intellectual property cases. Transcript: In the last episode of The Trade Secrets we looked at one of the most important jurisdiction cases in the last 70 to 100 years. The Washington Shoe v. A-Z Sporting Goods case. And to really put that case in perspective we've got to back 70 years and look at the grand-daddy of all jurisdictions, International Shoe v. State of Washington. Now, interestingly, both of these cases involve the sale of shoes inside and outside the state of Washington. In International Shoe we had a Delaware corporation doing business in Missouri, with sales people and showrooms located in Washington. Now the state of Washington looked at this and said, "We don't think you're paying us enough taxes. We want unemployment for these sales people located in our state. International Shoe said, "We're not doing enough business with you. Leave us alone. We already pay too many taxes." It went to the Supreme Court. And the Supreme Court of the United States said, "Look, you're selling shoes in Washington. You've got display rooms in Washington and, yeah, the shoes ship from Missouri to Washington. But there's enough interstate commerce that we think that jurisdiction is proper. In other words, it was not unfair that this Delaware corporation, doing business in Missouri, should be sued in the state of Washington and have to pay taxes there. Because there was enough business going on. They said, "Look, if an infringer is willfully using your copyright from another state, and they know they're causing damages in your home state, you can sue them there. And that does not offend the notions of fair play and substantial justice. One of the issues, was that it decided what was fair from the perspective of the defendant. In that case, International Shoe. Is it fair that they get hauled in to court somewhere else? Okay. Let's fast forward until about 1997. We had the advent of the internet. And suddenly, there was an explosion of interstate commerce. It was crazy. And we had a 70-year old antique analysis to sort of lead us through what was going to be fair in a particular case. In the next episode of the Trade Secrets we will take a detailed look at this important ground-breaking decision.

"A Corporate Trojan Horse": Obama Pushes Secretive TPP Trade Pact, Would Rewrite Swath of U.S. Laws
 
12:21
http://www.democracynow.org - As the federal government shutdown continues, Secretary of State John Kerry heads to Asia for secret talks on a sweeping new trade deal, the Trans-Pacific Partnership. The TPP is often referred to by critics as "NAFTA on steroids," and would establishing a free-trade zone that would stretch from Vietnam to Chile, encompass 800 million people -- about a third of world trade and nearly 40 percent of the global economy. While the text of the treaty has been largely negotiated behind closed doors and until June, kept secret from Congress, more than 600 corporate advisors reportedly have access to the measure, including employees of Halliburton, and Monsanto. "This is not mainly about trade," says Lori Wallach, director of Public Citizen's Global Trade Watch. "It is a corporate trojan horse. The agreement has 29 chapters, and only five of them have to do with trade. The other 24 chapters either handcuff our domestic governments -- limiting food safety, environmental standards, financial regulation, energy and climate policy -- or establishing new powers for corporations."

How can you put yourself in the best position to succeed in a constantly developing legal landscape? Whether you are an employer drafting agreements and policies or in litigation seeking to enforce or avoid them, you will want to know about recent developments and what to expect in this area. During this briefing, the panel will discuss salient developments in 2014, including: Recent decisions regarding what constitutes adequate consideration for a non-compete The trend toward criminal prosecution of trade secret theft, especially in the international context Interesting decisions determining choice-of-law issues New and pending state and federal legislation Presented by Epstein Becker Green Attorneys: David J.
