Does a revised (not signed) non compete clause void an old (signed) one?

I signed a non compete clause in 2007. In the fall of 2010 they revised their handbook and came out with a new non compete clause. I did not sign that one. I would like to know if that old one is void since they revised it with a new one or if they can come back to me signing that old one if they still have it on file.

This seems like an easy question, but it's not. There are circumstances where if they updated the clause for everyone and you continued to work there, you impliedly accepted the new non-compete clause.

To get a more specific answer, we would have to look at the language you are referring to.
