[EVENT] Battling IT Theft and Unfair Competition: Enforcers Use A New Approach

Presented by the State Enforcement, Intellectual Property, International and Media & Technology Committees of the American Bar Association’s Section of Antitrust Law.

The California, Massachusetts and Washington AG offices recently announced innovative enforcement actions using their unfair competition statutes against manufacturers in Thailand, India and China who lowered their costs by using stolen technology and competed unfairly against law-abiding companies in their states. Other AG offices and the FTC have also expressed interest in this area. A panel of experts will discuss these cases and the growing trend to combat unfair competition from overseas manufacturers by discouraging the theft of US technology.
