Out of Thin Air: Trade Secrets, Cybersecurity, and the Wrongful Acquisition Tort
Professor Sharon K. Sandeen , of Mitchell Hamline School of Law, presented a working draft of her work Out of Thin Air: Trade Secrets, Cybersecurity, and the Wrongful Acquisition Tort . This draft chapter examines how the “acquisition by improper means” prong of U.S. trade secret law developed and how it became disconnected from the requirement of a subsequent disclosure or use of the trade secrets.
From Mitchell Hamline School of Law, “Professor Sandeen is director of the IP Institute at Mitchell Hamline and an internationally recognized expert on trade secret law, having written three books (with E. Rowe) and more than 25 articles and book chapters on trade secret law and other intellectual property topics, including the first casebook on trade secret law in the United States (Cases and Materials in Trade Secret Law), a book on international trade secret protection (Trade Secrecy and International Transactions), and detailed examinations of the drafting histories of the Uniform Trade Secrets Act and Article 39 of the TRIPS Agreement. She is also the editor of the IP Deskbook for Business Lawyers, now in its third edition”.
