Friday Factoid – 6.28.13

President Obama recently signed two new laws regarding trade secret protections.  The first law expands federal law to criminalize the misappropriation of a trade secret “related to a product or service used in or intended for use in interstate or foreign commerce.”  The second law increases the penalties for violating federal laws regarding trade secret misappropriation.
