States That Ban Non-Compete Agreements
(This is obviously not a surprise considering that the last ban was introduced in 1890 – even before there were ip-intensive companies.) The reflexive assumption that Silicon Valley is the product of California`s ban on opponents of non-competition, while it is acceptable for occasional discussions, is dangerous for public order to rely on it; It has not been proven, contrary to some research, and ignores that neither North Dakota nor Oklahoma have developed a competing silicon valley technology center, while Austin, Boston, Denver, New York, Raleigh, Seattle and others (all in states that impose non-compete rules) have developed all major tech centers (several with a higher “percentage of tech job postings” than San Jose or San Francisco). . .
