                             Abstract

        The misappropriation  of trade secrets threat comes from
   numerous  sources, such as current or former employees, com-
   petitors, clients, suppliers, and hackers. Given the fundamental
   role computer programs play in numerous industries, and taken
   into consideration the high complexity and  financial invest-
   ments involved in the development process, source code presents
   a particular interest for perpetrators. Successful misappropria-
   tion can result in profound consequences for the victims, com-
   pelling strong legal protection. Depending on the nature and
   circumstances of the offense, the theft of source code can be
   prosecuted as violation of several statutes, such as the Eco-
   nomic Espionage  Act; the Fraud by Wire, Radio, or Television;
   the Computer  Fraud and Abuse  Act; the National Stolen Prop-
   erty Act; and the Arms Export Control Act.
