Wow, this is not a good decision for employers that would certainly want some additional protections from employees that grab data and run. I assume wise employers will consider having more, if not all computer using employees, to sign confidentiality and work product agreements upon hire to at least provide for a clearer path to a positive judgment via breach of contract actions.

I suspect the decision will be appealed and we shall see whether the appellant court agrees with the Southern District of New Yourk's very narrow interpretation!
