Austria: Trade secrets litigation trends in the EU

The EUIPO Observatory has published a new report on the litigation trends regarding the unlawful acquisition, use or disclosure of trade secrets pursuant to Article 18 of Directive (EU) 2016/943 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 8 June 2016 (The Trade Secrets Directive). The analysis within covers litigation between 1 January 2017 and 31 October 2022 and is complementary to ‘The Baseline of Trade Secrets Litigation in the EU Member States’ published by the Observatory in 2018.

The new report, produced by the Università degli Studi di Torino, Dipartimento di Giurisprudenza, represents a comprehensive and thorough analysis of trade secrets litigation trends in the EU and shows the level of harmonisation achieved after the implementation of the provisions of the Trade Secrets Directive within the boundaries of the subject matter’s inherent complexity. 

The Austrian chapter was contributed by Schoenherr experts Dominik Hofmarcher and Yelyzaveta Semenovykh.
