Not sure whether the proceedings on July 22 will be comprehensible to non-attorneys, but I'm going to go in the hopes that they are. The title is "Freedom to Compete? A Symposium on Bills Affecting Employee Non-Compete Agreements." State Rep. Will Brownsberger, who is sponsoring a bill to abolish non-competes, will be there.
Bijan Sabet, a partner at Spark Capital, this week started an online petition drive, encouraging people to sign if they'd like to ban non-competes.
