This panel will explore the overlaps and distinguishing characteristics among the newly enacted Defense Trade Secrets Act (DTSA), the Uniform Trade Secrets Act (UTSA), and state-specific Trade Secrets Acts. The discussion will cover the effects of concurrently pending state and federal cases, strategies for obtaining supplemental jurisdiction over state law-based trade secret claims, and whether the DTSA requirement for a claimant to be an owner of a trade secret differs from that of current state laws.
