Seyfarth attorneys will present the eleventh installment in our 2013 Trade Secrets webinar series. This webinar will involve a discussion about steps and responses companies can take when their confidential information and/or trade secrets appear, or are threatened to appear, on the internet.

The topics that will be covered include:

  • Is the information really confidential and/or a trade secret?
  • Suing the internet service provider.
  • Seeking to block further access to posting and the possibility of shutting down the website.
  • Special problems that can arise when attempting to obtain the identification of the person(s) responsible for the misappropriation, and how to handle these problems.
  • Best practices for initiating litigation against the person(s) who misappropriated the confidential information.
