Presentation on the First 18 Months of the Defend Trade Secrets Act

Earlier this month, I spoke at the California State Bar IP Section’s “IP Institute” in Newport Beach. My topic was “What’s Up With the Defend Trade Secrets Act?” I used the 60 minute session to look at what’s been happening in the 18 months since the act’s enactment. To prepare, I “borrowed” liberally from DTSA slide decks by other trade secret experts (including David Levine, Sharon Sandeen and Chris Seaman) and paid them great homage. That makes my slide deck a nice pastiche to some of the best DTSA slide decks of others. My slide deck.
