Working Paper Series 2020-13 Trade Secrets Laws and Technology Spillovers

摘 要:

technology spillovers between focal firms (i.e., receivers of spillovers) and peers (i.e., senders of spillovers). I find that technology spillovers from peers located in states adopting the UTSA are 27% to 75% lower than technology spillovers from peers located in states not adopting the UTSA. Focal firms whose peers come from the UTSA states have lower R&D investments and fewer migrant inventors than firms whose peers come from non-UTSA states. I also find that the Defend Trade Secrets Act has weak effect on technology spillovers.
