Trade Secrets

What exactly is a TRADE SECRET?

AND HOW DO YOU PROTECT THEM?

Trade Secrets are NOT governed by any FEDERAL STATUTE and in fact, TRADE SECRETS are like the step-child of patents, trademarks and copyrights…and are tied to State Laws

They are about protecting things that you can’t file a patent, trademark or copyright on – but are they any less valuable?  The answer is unequivocally NO!

Trade Secrets are sometimes more important that any of the above intellectual property rights – as these are HOW YOU DO THINGS internally – how you have achieved your success and a host of OTHER things that you just do NOT want people to be sharing – especially if you work for a pretty large company or better still a start-up company that has some really cool new ways and/or idea about how to get a leg up on their competition!

The BEST way to protect your trade secrets is by CONTRACT as well as by putting that “THIS IS A TRADE SECRET” on anything that you share with people you work with, for, or in a partnership or other business entity that are working together!

I’ve got MORE to come on this topic but I accidentally hit PUBLISH TOO SOON – so I’ll be getting back to this BLOG as soon as I can!  As it’s VERY IMPORTANT INFORMATION!

Sincerely,

Steve Moore, BA, JD. Author
