The Knowledge Group Has Scheduled a Live Webcast on The Defend Trade Secrets Act: Trends & Developments in 2018

The Knowledge Group/The Knowledge Congress Live Webcast Series, the leading producer of regulatory focused webcasts, announced today that it has scheduled a live webcast entitled: The Defend Trade Secrets Act: Trends & Developments in 2018. This event is scheduled on April 17, 2018 at 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm (ET).

Event Synopsis:

The Defend Trade Secrets Act (DTSA) is one of the most significant developments in trade secret law. It created a new civil cause of action allowing trade secret owners to sue for misappropriation in federal court under the federal law. While trade secret holders are provided with additional legal mechanisms, they also have an affirmative obligation to inform employees regarding the whistleblower immunity provision.
With the rapidly evolving legal climate, plaintiffs and defendants should closely monitor DTSA trends and developments to keep their clients ahead of the curve in 2018 and beyond.

Join a panel of key thought leaders assembled by The Knowledge Group as they bring the audience to a road beyond the basics of bringing or defending against DTSA claims and as they delve into an in-depth analysis of the current trends and recent court rulings involving trade secrets. Speakers will also provide the audience with practical strategies in bringing out the best in these lawsuits amidst the surge in trade secret litigation.
Key topics include:
• Overview of DTSA
• DTSA Litigation: Recent Trends & Developments
• Notable Court Rulings
• Best Litigation Strategies
• Outlook in 2018 and Beyond
