MBA Essential Tip:
The Economic Espionage Act of 1996 was passed in response to an increase of industrial espionage. This espionage is estimated to have cost U.S. companies $25 billion in 1995 alone. The Act covers theft of trade secrets by domestic and foreign spies.
For foreigners, economic espionage is defined as knowingly stealing or fraudulently obtaining a trade secret with the intent to benefit a foreign government or agent.
Domestically, the law considers whether the defendant intended to use a trade secret to anyone's economic benefit other than the trade-secret owner and whether the defendant knew that it would injure the owner.
In order for information to be considered a trade secret, the owner of the information must have taken "reasonable measures to keep such information secret." The value of trade secrets is due to their proprietary nature.

"The easiest way to keep a secret is without help." -unknown author

In this show I'll discuss how to determine when the time is right to leave your employer, how to do so properly, and the important legal issue of Trade Secrets. Most people don't realize that trade secret law applies to them, even if they didn't sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement!
