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.

The full text of the new law can be found here.
