On 27 November the European Commission will adopt a proposal for a directive on the protection of trade secrets and confidential business information from misappropriation and misuse by third parties

 

The aim of the proposal is to harmonise national laws on protecting against misappropriation of trade secrets by establishing a common definition and ensuring that in cases of unlawful acquisition, use or disclosure of a trade secret, a sufficient and comparable level of redress across the EU is provided.

 

IP and MEMO will be available on the day.
