The "Big Three" categories of intellectual property are traditionally patents, copyrights and trademarks. But potentially even more valuable is the fourth category of trade secrets. New technologies and cross-border transactions place valuable secrets at increased risk. Legislatures throughout the world are recognizing that fact and responding with new laws. If you work at or counsel a technology company or any other company that creates or works with trade secrets – which means any company – this course will teach you what you need to know to protect your valuable assets, secure effective remedies for misappropriation and prevent and defend against unfounded claims of misappropriation.
