Recent State Developments to Non-Competes and Trade Secrets

Today, I am co-presenting at the American Intellectual Property Law Association (AIPLA) Trade Secret Summit in Boston. 

Below is an excerpt from a paper that provides an update on state law legislative developments relating to non-competes and trade secrets.

In 2015, several states have recently introduced or passed legislation dealing with the law of trade secrets and non-compete agreements. Several states have introduced California-style bans on non-competes, but so far only Hawaii has passed legislation implementing such a ban (and that ban is limited to “tech” companies). In contrast, legislation has passed in two states (Alabama and Arkansas) that strengthens non-competes.
