As reported by Lexology.com... The President is expected to sign the Defend Trade Secrets Act (DTSA) shortly, so companies should be prepared to tangle with the newest cause of action on the block:
- In cases of trade secret theft, consider whether state or federal court is your best venue;
- Ensure that any new confidentiality agreements and existing policies comply with the DTSA’s immunity provision;
- Protect your trade secrets! The DTSA is only useful when disaster strikes. Your first goal should be to take affirmative action to protect your sensitive information so that you never need the law’s protections.
