Washington and Lee law professor Christopher Seaman has co-authored (with Professors Eric Goldman, David Levine, and Sharon Sandeen) a letter to Congress signed by 42 IP law professors opposing the Defend Trade Secrets Act of 2015.  The Act would create a new civil cause of action for trade secret misappropriation under federal law.  This letter builds on Professor Seaman’s critiques of similar legislation introduced in the previous Congress and published in the Virginia Law Review earlier this year.
