In part one of this series, we outlined the plight of a hypothetical U.S. company, SFilm, which designed an innovative flexible solar film and invested $750 million in a new plant to capitalize on its breakthrough technology. A Chinese company stole critical trade secrets covering the new technology, and entered the market with a competing product, thereby placing SFilm’s entire business in jeopardy. SFilm began to fight back by commencing federal court trade secrets litigation in a district with jurisdiction over the foreign defendant.
