(765 ILCS 1065/4)
(from Ch. 140, par. 354)
(a) In addition to the relief provided for by Section
3, a person is entitled to recover damages for misappropriation. Damages
can include both the actual loss caused by misappropriation and the unjust
enrichment caused by misappropriation that is not taken into account in
computing actual loss. If neither damages nor unjust enrichment caused by
the misappropriation are proved by a preponderance of the evidence, the
court may award damages caused by misappropriation measured in terms of a
reasonable royalty for a misappropriator's unauthorized disclosure or use
of a trade secret.
(b) If willful and malicious misappropriation exists, the court may
award exemplary damages in an amount not exceeding twice any award made
under subsection (a).
