Trade Secrets

Trade Secrets many times are incorporated into employment contracts. As a condition of employment with a certain company, the employee acknowledges that certain papers, lists, processes, policies, and trade secrets are confidential and disclosure could cause the company irreparable harm.

A trade secret is a process, method, plan, formula or other information unique to a manufacturer, which has value due to the market advantage over competitors it produces. Use or disclosure of a trade secret by an employee, former employee, or anyone else may be prohibited by a court-ordered injunction. The owner of a trade secret may seek damages against such a person for revealing the secret. Also, when trade secrets are involved in a lawsuit, a "protective order" may be requested from the judge to prohibit revelation of a trade secret or a sealing of the record in the case where references to the trade secret are made. A trade secret is separate from and covered under different law from a patentable invention.
