In a survey of EU companies, one in five reported suffering at least one attempted trade secret theft within the EU during the previous decade..

The proposal lays out what constitutes an infringing act, potential remedies, a method of calculating damages in trade secret misappropriation cases, and ways to protect trade secrets during litigation.. It would create criminal laws to address trade secret protection in some countries where none currently exist.. The initiative is part of a wider Europe 2020 strategy, which undertakes to create an Innovation Union by the end of the decade.. This proposal aims to boost the confidence of businesses, creators, researchers and innovators in collaborative innovation across the internal market, said Commissioner for Internal Market and Services Michel Barnier..

It is a further step in the Commission s efforts to shape a legal framework that is conducive to innovation and smart growth.. SUBSCRIBE.. TAGS.. Intellectual Property (46).. Anti-corruption (36)..
