This talk will provide an overview of trade secret rights and answering questions about those rights, e.g., what can I protect? Should I patent? What do I need to do to keep my secrets secret? Trade secrets are both State and Federal. Both systems are designed to provide protections for diverse secrets, e.g., customer lists, chemical formals, and ingredients of Coca Cola. The program will explore the various trade secret rights, as well as the vocabulary to use in discussing these rights. Key topics to be discussed:

  • What are trade secrets and trade secret rights
  • How to secure, if necessary, state or federal trade section protection
  • Famous and current cases
  • New technologies and trade secrets
  • How to sue, and what to do when sued for infringement
  • What duties do I have toward keeping the secret
  • What are the damages, my liability for infringement?
