Interested in finding out more about the Theft of Trade Secrets Clarification Act of 2012 and how it may impact criminal and civil cases in 2013? Well, join Warrington Parker, Peter Toren and me for a one hour briefing, “The Theft of Trade Secrets Clarification Act of 2012: Practical Implications for Employees, Employers and Trade Secret Litigation” on Friday, January 25, 2013 at 1 p.m. EST.
As many of you know, the Act was signed by President Obama on December 31, 2012 to address the decision by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit in the high profile prosecution of former Goldman Sachs programmer, Sergey Aleynikov. That decision had the effect of significantly narrowing the category of trade secrets that could be prosecuted under the Economic Espionage Act (EEA).
Warrington will moderate a discussion over the history of the EEA, recent prosecutions, the U.S. v. Aleynikov decision, the Act itself, and what its impact will be for the civil remedy proposed by Senators Kohl and Coons, the Protecting American Trade Secrets and Innovation Act.
The briefing is one hour long and CLE-approved for many states. For more information, please check out Law Seminars International’s link for the presentation here. Hope you can join us.
