Both trade secrets laws and noncompete laws are the product of state law, although at the federal level there is a criminal trade secrets law (the Economic Espionage Act). These laws are in a constant state of flux.
Given how hard it can be to stay on top of the recent developments in each state (as well as at the federal level) and the absence of any aggregation of this information elsewhere, we decided that it would be worth a separate page that can be used as a resource for state-by-state, federal, and (significant) international developments.
Accordingly, we are pleased to announced that we have just launched a separate page dedicated exclusively to identifying the current status of changes and proposed changes in trade secrets laws and noncompete laws around the country: The Changing Landscape of Trade Secrets Laws and Noncompete Laws Around the Country.
While we will continue to post regular updates in blog posts, the dedicated page is intended to serve as an ongoing resource for people to easily find the status of all of the important developments in one place.
