Texas Adopts the Uniform Trade Secrets Act

Posted in Legislation, Trade Secrets

On May 2, 2013, Texas Governor Rick Perry signed into law the Texas Uniform Trade Secrets Act.

The new law adopts a version of the Uniform Trade Secrets Act.

The law will take effect on September 1, 2013 and will apply to a misappropriation of trade secrets that takes place on or after that date.

I summarized some of the major changes brought about by the new law in my prior blog post.
