Massachusetts Adopts Uniform Trade Secrets Act

    On October 1, 2018, Massachusetts adopted a version of the Uniform Trade Secrets Act (UTSA), which contains provisions similar to the federal Defend Trade Secrets Act (DTSA).

    Massachusetts’ UTSA enables the state to provide injunctive relief against “actual or threatened misappropriation” of trade secrets, which have either “actual or potential” economic value. Massachusetts’ adoption of the UTSA makes it the 49th state to adopt a version of the act; only New York has not enacted some form of the UTSA.
