Each issue of PLI Current brings you original articles written by leading practitioners with expertise in a variety of practice areas.

As The Journal of PLI Press enters its third year, we continue striving to bring you expert coverage of legal, business, and professional topics you’ll find interesting and practical. Four of the ten original articles in this issue of PLI Current deal with international/global themes. The first tackles the turbulent world of U.S. economic sanctions even as major developments continued unfolding right up to the day this journal’s publication—including the lifting of sanctions on companies controlled by Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska and the imposition of sweeping sanctions against Venezuela’s state-owned oil company.

Berliner Corcoran & Rowe partners Daniel Fisher-Owens and Ben Flowe address U.S. export controls and related OFAC sanctions relating to commercial encryption items, e-commerce, and cloud computing—an extensive and detailed review that practitioners in this area will find invaluable.

If your interests involve business in the Chinese market, don’t miss Laura Wen-yu Young’s article on the challenges of protecting trade secrets in China—a topic whose importance is underscored by late-breaking developments involving China’s largest tech company. As this journal was being finalized for publication, U.S. prosecutors filed criminal charges against Huawei Technologies, claiming trade secret theft and bank fraud. While the article does not specifically address these allegations, its timely coverage provides valuable insights into the current environment from someone with significant experience and expertise in this area.

It has been less than a year since the GDPR came into force, and organizations continue to try to understand all of its implications. U.K.-based data protection specialist Richard Lawne examines the tensions between U.S. and European regulation of data held by cloud service providers in the EU.

“Preparing to Take a Deposition,” by Thomas R.
