BetaBoston had written of no competes in Massachusetts:
Many local business leaders and legislators have called for the state to abolish the laws regarding noncompetes for a while, with little success. There was a growing sense that the state legislature would wise up and realize the negative impact the agreements have on a robust business ecosystem in Massachusetts. The tech and innovation community, in particular, made an big push to eliminate noncompetes, seeing that Massachusetts was losing tech and engineering talent to Silicon Valley. California does not enforce noncompetes.
