About the Symposium
This inaugural symposium, to be held by the Trade Secrets Institute, will focus on emerging issues in trade secrets law and the tension between the rights of information owners and the public.
What are the limits of trade secret protection? Who owns the data generated by individuals and aggregated by vendors? When does the public’s right to know about the effects of private activities on their health, about the procedures and findings of tribunals outweigh countervailing interests in keeping those facts secret? The symposium will bring together leading legal minds -- academics, practitioners, and advocates -- to address these questions.
The first panel will address data mining, at issue in the recent Sorrell v. IMS Health decision. The second panel will discuss the public health implications of trade secret protection. A welcome and introductory remarks will be given by the New York State Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman.
