On May 2, 2013, Governor Rick Perry signed the Texas Uniform Trade Secrets Act (TUTSA), a substantially similar law to the Uniform Trade Secrets Act (UTSA). The adoption of UTSA goes into effect on September 1, 2013, and brings Texas into line with the 47 other states that have adopted the uniform act. The only states that have not adopted UTSA are New York and Massachusetts. The new law updates and clarifies many important issues regarding the protection of trade secrets that have been developed by common law in court decisions without legislative guidance.
