This Survey period saw further developments and exposed some new and interesting questions in the law of trade secrets, tortious interference, false advertising, and other business torts. It also saw further interpretations of some of the new statutes regulating fair and unfair behavior, especially regarding the use of new technologies. In particular, the Texas law of noncompetition covenants continued its trend toward stricter interpretation and enforcement.
