What Is Defend Trade Secrets Act?

Defend Trade Secrets Act creates federal jurisdiction over the theft of trade secrets. This means trade secret owners can now bring lawsuits under federal law as well as state law, giving plaintiffs more options. It does not replace the state trade secret laws but gives an extra layer of protection. The DTSA applies only to products or services in interstate or foreign commerce.

Signed in 2016, the DTSA makes the law regarding trade secrets more consistent. Though most states follow some version of the Uniform Trade Secrets Act, each state still has its own trade secrets law. This can lead to confusion and inconsistencies in how to bring civil action.

Trademark Surname

What Does it Mean to Trademark a Surname?

A surname alone only qualifies as a trademark if it has already been associated with the business through advertising and has acquired a secondary meaning. It is also clear why somebody with the McDonald surname could not register a fast food restaurant on the name only.

Why is a Trademark Surname Important?

While it is not possible in every case to register a surname as a trademark, if it has "acquired distinctiveness", the business owner should protect it. The approval or rejection of the trademark request depends on:

  • Whether the surname is rare
  • If it is connected with the person registering it
  • If it has a recognized meaning and association with a type of service
  • How the name sounds in the business world - Us
