About Trade Secrets

Trade secrets consist of recipes, instructions, production methods and other information that gives a person or a business a competitive edge or advantage and information about the trade secret is not readily accessible by the general public. Often, the best way to protect your trade secrets is simply to not share them and to maintain them in confidence. You should also educate your staff on the importance of protecting your company’s trade secrets.

Unlike copyrights, patents and trademarks, there is currently no way to register your trade secrets as being yours, though there are laws that allow you to sue if you discover that a competitor inappropriately obtained your trade secrets and is using them.
