Microsoft applauds signing of Defend Trade Secrets Act into law

Today, President Obama signed The Defend Trade Secrets Act (S. 1890) into law.  The DTSA will provide a much needed federal standard and remedy for trade secret misappropriation.  The DTSA passed Congress with nearly unanimous support, thanks to the strong bipartisan efforts of bill sponsors and Senate and House Judiciary Committee leaders, and Administration support.  Microsoft applauds this landmark effort to protect America’s innovation leadership and competitiveness in global markets.
