Update on the Senate Judiciary Committee's Hearing on the Protection of Trade Secrets | Seyfarth Shaw | Trading Secrets

After the introductory statements, the four witnesses that appeared at the hearing were announced: Karen Cochran, Chief IP Counsel at E.I. DuPont de Nemours and Co.; Tom Beall, VP and Chief IP Counsel at Corning Corp.; James Pooley, Principal at James Pooley, PLC; and Professor Sharon Sandeen, Hamline University School of Law.
Beall testified that one of its most successful products has been unprotected under patent law for many years, but its trade secrets help keep its version of the product at the top of the market. He also voiced Corning's support of the DTSA based on the fact that state trade secret laws are not harmonized, litigating in many different states actually increases litigation costs, and service of process on a trade secret thief is difficult, if not impossible at times. Beall cited a real-life example that happened to Corning in which an individual fled the country with company trade secrets, but Corning was unable to prosecute under state trade secret law due to jurisdictional issues.

(2015) (statement of Tom Beall, Vice President and Chief Intellectual Property Counsel, Corning Incorporated, in response to a question from Senator Hatch) ("[T]his particular law is not intended to preempt state law.")(quoted language is from transcript of hearing).

"At the state level, most states have enacted laws modeled on the Uniform Trade Secrets Act," said Thomas Beall, vice president and chief of intellectual property at Corning, Inc., during a Senate hearing.
"These state law protections are important, but are less efficient and effective as the nature of our economy-and trade secret misappropriation-becomes more interstate and international. "Many of today's innovative companies, both large and small, operate across state and international borders and have their trade secrets threatened by competitors around the world; they maintain company data digitally, trade around the globe, and may have employees in multiple states and countries." The Corning vice president, who supports the Hatch-Coons bill, said the existing patchwork of state laws is inadequate for discouraging and prosecuting trade secret theft. "First, trade secret theft often requires immediate action in order to preserve the value of the stolen property, particularly when a stolen trade secret is taken across state lines, or when the thief seeks to leave the country," Beall said.
