Overview

Trade Secret Protection: Asia at a Crossroads, a first-of-its-kind systematized research of trade secret protection laws covering several Asian jurisdictions, furnishes an in-depth analysis of the relevant statutory and case law of Japan, Korea, China, Taiwan, Thailand, Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia, and India. Additionally, a chapter on the European Union trade secret protection law enables further comparison. Trade secret protection law has gained increasing importance in recent years, as companies implement strategies to protect their intellectual property in a competitive environment with rapidly developing technology. This holds especially true for Asia, where the staggering commercial value of trade secrets, stiff cross-border competition, and large-scale labour mobility characterize the region’s economy.

What’s in this book:

Thirty-one local experts provide a clear overview of national laws and practices by examining the following aspects of their respective national regimes:

  • requirements of trade secrets;
  • validity and scope of confidentiality and/or non-competition clauses;
  • burden of proof and its shifting or reversal;
  • order for protecting the secrecy of a trade secret during prosecution and trial;
  • civil remedies (injunctive relief and damages); and
  • criminal punishment for trade secret infringement.

How this will help you:

This authentic, reliable and insightful compendium of the dynamic and multifaceted development of trade secret protection law in Asia promises to be an asset for practitioners, corporate counsels, judges, and scholars concerned with cross-border protection of intellectual assets.
