ForensisGroup Expert Witnesses in the Defend Trade Secrets Act (DTSA) are adept at all aspects of this recent law that permits an owner of a trade secret to sue in federal court when its trade secrets have been misappropriated.
The DTSA federalizes trade secret protection but also preserves state law trade secret protections. It provides a uniform definition of trade secrets, a uniform standard for misappropriation, nationwide service of process, and nationwide execution of judgments.
The DTSA provides “An owner of a trade secret that is misappropriated may bring a civil action under this subsection if the trade secret is related to a product or service used in, or intended for use in, interstate or foreign commerce.” The claim arises when the misappropriation is or should have been discovered. The act incorporates a three-year statute of limitations.
