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.

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.
