What Are Trade Secrets?
Trade secrets can technically be defined as any private information pertaining to your business that gives your company an advantage over competitors.. The exact law differs by State, however, the Uniform Trade Secrets Act (UTSA), drafted by the Uniform Law Commission, has been officially adopted by 47 States making the law more consistent across State lines. In 2016, the Defend Trade Secrets Act was signed into Federal Law allowing businesses to sue in Federal court without first going through their respective state judicial systems.
Areas of business competition where trade secrets may apply:
- sales and marketing methods & strategies, along with customer or client lists
- distribution & manufacturing processes
- customer avatars & profiles
