Robert B. Milligan, Partner and Co-Chair of Seyfarth’s National Trade Secret, Computer Fraud, and Non-Compete practice group, just finished co-editing and co-authoring a prominent new California trade secret treatise.
This Supplement to the Third Edition practice guide addresses the Defend Trade Secrets Act (DTSA ), which was enacted in 2016. This Supplement includes additional practical tips and strategies related to the DTSA. This is one of the first books on the new law.
This supplement addresses:
- A general overview of the DTSA, including its history and impact.
- The DTSA’s scope and remedies afforded by it.
- Analysis of recent case law discussing the DTSA’s whistleblower immunity provision and employer compliance with the DTSA’s whistleblower immunity notice provision.
- A comparison of the DTSA to the California Uniform Trade Secrets Act (CUTSA or the CUTSA), the Economic Espionage Act (EEA), the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (CFAA), and Section 337 of the Federal Tariff Act of 1930 (Section 337).
The treatise can be purchased by State Bar IP Section Members for $25 and by Non-Members for $30.
