Chinese Taipei
This amendment introduces a “confidentiality order for prosecutorial investigation” system to strengthen protection of trade secrets during investigation proceedings. A person who violates a confidentiality order shall be liable to imprisonment for a maximum of three years. The new law will prevent trade secret leak during investigation, increase corporations’ willingness to file a lawsuit, and enable prosecutors to effectively and quickly conclude their investigations. This amendment also increases protection of foreigners’ trade secrets, so as to attract foreign investment and boost business development. For example, an unrecognized foreign juristic person may file a complaint, initiate a private prosecution, or institute a civil lawsuit.
