How are trade secrets protected?

Unlike patents, trade secrets do not require any form of registration. Trade secret protection is typically viewed as a “do-it-yourself” form of protection, but it is still advised that businesses seek the counsel of a knowledgeable business lawyer when deciding how you’d like to protect your trade secrets. The intentional theft of trade secrets can be considered a crime under federal and state laws. Should your trade secrets be stolen, you have the right to pursue justice, even if it requires litigation.

You can protect your company’s trade secrets by doing the following:

  • Using nondisclosure agreements, employment agreements, and manufacturing agreements
  • Marking documents pertaining to trade secrets as “confidential”
  • Maintaining proper computer security
