Mid-Year Trade Secret Case Roundup and Legislative Updates

There have been several significant trade secret cases this year. In their “Trade Secrets – Annual Year in Review (2020),” which was accepted by the American Intellectual Property Law Association for its Virtual Annual Meeting, Russell Beck and Hannah Joseph summarize some of the key case holdings and legislative developments from across the country over the past year.

Recent trade secret cases covered by the article focus on issues including standing, spoliation, the level of specificity required in identifying alleged trade secrets, the extraterritorial reach of the Defend Trade Secrets Act, calculation of damages, jury instructions, and others.

In addition, there have been several potentially far-reaching trade secret-related developments. In particular, a decade-plus divide over the application of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act is heading to the Supreme Court. And the federal government has been considering federal regulation of noncompetes.
