(1) Actual or threatened misappropriation may be enjoined. Upon application to the court, an injunction shall be terminated when the trade
secret has ceased to exist, but the injunction may be continued for an additional
reasonable period of time in order to eliminate commercial advantage that otherwise
would be derived from the misappropriation.
(2) In exceptional circumstances, an injunction may condition future use upon payment
of a reasonable royalty for no longer than the period of time for which use could
have been prohibited. Exceptional circumstances shall include, but not be limited to, a material and prejudicial
change of position prior to acquiring knowledge or reason to know of misappropriation
that renders a prohibitive injunction inequitable.
(3) In appropriate circumstances, affirmative acts to protect a trade secret may
be compelled by court order.
