Available evidence suggests that trade secrets have grown in importance over the past two decades. The greater importance attached to trade secrets results from the volume of valuable business and technical information generated by the use of IT, the reliance on partners in supply chains and other forms of international collaboration, the increased mobility of skilled personnel, and some perceived short-comings in the effectiveness of patent protection.
In this webinar, IPH Strategic Advisor and former Director General of WIPO, Dr. Francis Gurry, will explore several key issues and global trends relating to trade secrets, including:
- The legal principles applicable to trade secret protection;
- Differences in national approaches, and;
- Practical measures for safeguarding trade secrets that emerge from cases.
