In Seyfarth’s sixth installment in its series of 2013 Trade Secret Webinars, on Tuesday, June 25, 2013 at 12:00 p.m. Central Time, Seyfarth attorneys Bob Stevens, Erik Weibust and Dan Hart will discuss the significant statutory changes to several jurisdictions’ laws regarding trade secrets and restrictive covenants and pending legislation proposed in additional jurisdictions over the past year.  As trade secrets and non-compete laws continue to evolve from state to state in piecemeal fashion, companies should continually revisit their trade secrets and non-compete strategies in light of the evolving legal landscape and legislative trends. Topics will include:

  • Recent and proposed statutory changes to restrictive covenant laws in Connecticut, New Jersey, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Illinois, Minnesota, and Maryland; 
  • Recent and proposed statutory changes to trade secrets laws, including amendments to the federal Economic Espionage Act, the proposed Protecting American Trade Secrets and Innovation Act (“PATSIA”); the adoption of the Uniform Trade Secrets Act (“UTSA”) in Texas, and the proposed adoption of the UTSA in Massachusetts;
  • Recent and proposed social media laws in California, Michigan, Washington, New Jersey, Utah, New Mexico, Arkansas, Oregon, Vermont, Colorado, and Illinois; and 
  • Practical tips for anticipating trends in trade secrets and non-compete law.

There is no cost to attend this program, however, registration is required.
