  • Title: U.S. businesses urge Japan to take action on trade secret protection | CREATe.org
    Descriptive info: U.. businesses urge Japan to take action on trade secret protection.. November 19, 2013.. American business interests in Japan are calling on Tokyo to use its clout to move the global marketplace towards a robust and uniform system of protection against the theft of trade secrets.. The.. position paper Viewpoint.. , published by the American Chamber of Commerce in Japan (ACCJ), comes amid the growing problem of theft of competitive information such things as manufacturing techniques, sophisticated technologies, secret formulas and company strategy particularly by electronic means.. This proprietary information has become increasingly important to the value of companies in high-end manufacturing, defense, health care, and other sectors, and often represents years of work and millions of dollars worth of research.. Trade secret theft directly threatens the revenue and growth potential of Japanese and American companies, says the paper, written by the Chamber s Intellectual Property Committee.. The impact of trade secret theft can be devastating to both business and consumers.. ACCJ calls on the Government of Japan to work with its trading partners to put in place best practices around  ...   Under TRIPS--Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights WTO members are expected to provide effective protection for intellectual property, but the paper says that in many countries, including the EU, laws protecting trade secrets are underdeveloped and in some markets, protection is effectively non-existent, or available only on a contractual basis.. In addition, the litigation systems in some countries require public disclosure of the trade secret in any enforcement action, which is clearly counterproductive, it says.. The ACCJ also urges Tokyo to support voluntary standards set by members of industry, rather than setting rigid regulations, to combat theft, and help establish safe harbors for sharing information related to theft and threats without disclosing trade secrets.. Protecting know-how is critical to the growth of Japanese and American industry Therefore, it is critical to the long-term competiveness of both the United States and Japan to cultivate a policy environment that makes it possible to mitigate any threat, to these valuable assets, the report concludes.. Japan has the third largest economy in the world, after the United States and China.. Its largest trading partner is China..

  • Title: New Report: Trade Secret Theft | CREATe.org
    Descriptive info: New Report: Trade Secret Theft.. November 5, 2013.. Report looks at the world s rugged trade secret protection landscape.. Trade secrets, the privately held knowledge of everything from customer lists and strategic plans to proprietary formulas and manufacturing techniques comprise a critical and growing aspect of competitiveness for many companies.. But as the value of these intangible assets grows, so do the frequency and value of their theft especially by electronic means.. Once compromised, trade secrets no longer provide a market edge unlike intellectual property covered by patents, copyrights and trademarks.. Governments have recognized the problem of trade secret theft and some, led by the United States, have started to formulate policy and legal responses, but they are playing a game of catch-up.. A recently published report by international law firm.. Covington and Burling.. in partnership with the.. George Washington University Cybersecurity Initiative.. provides a close look at initiatives to protect trade secrets and where such protection is lacking.. Economic espionage and Trade Secret Theft:.. An overview of the legal landscape and policy responses, offers proposals for additional policy initiatives and advice to companies operating in this challenging business environment.. Until recently, in the United States, combatting trade secret theft was largely the concern of individual states, under laws loosely modeled after the federal Uniform Trade Secrets Act (UTSA), a civil code  ...   and raise global standards by utilizing trade policy tools, and by improving coordination among the relevant government agencies.. The report also discusses potential reforms being discussed by the European Union to halt mounting losses from trade secret theft recognizing that it is critical to harmonize efforts across its member countries.. These efforts lag the United States in providing consistent and robust trade secret protection.. Elsewhere in the world most notably in the key emerging economies of Brazil, Russia, India and China weak laws and ineffective enforcement may do little to help a company s ability to shield its valuable proprietary information.. Thus, as companies utilize supply chains that traverse the globe, the first line of defense lies with their own trade secret protection program, the authors argue.. The report lays out the elements of a comprehensive regime, including relatively low cost protocols and policies for controlling access and storage of information and employee training as well as more costly security technologies.. Companies should be proactive in investing in trade secret protection, the report argues.. Such expenditures should not be viewed as sunk costs, but rather important investment to preserve and enhance value.. See a copy of the.. full report.. org IP Protection Resources:..
